1 Thank God and take courage, rejoice evermore!
For He on whose promise we stand
Shall know of a surety the way that we go,
And prosper the work of our hand.

Rejoice evermore! rejoice evermore!
Till shouting we anchor on Canaan’s bright shore;
Then purer and sweeter our rapture will be,
For there in His beauty the King we shall see.

2 Thank God and take courage, of this we are sure,
That He, our Redeemer and friend,
Whose goodness and mercy thus far we have proved,
Will lead us safe on to the end. [Refrain]

3 Thank God and take courage, tho’ trials we meet,
Remember the Savior is nigh;
One kind, gentle word from His dear, loving voice
Will sweep every cloud from the sky. [Refrain]

4 Thank God and take courage, our vigor renew,
Press on to the mansions above,
The mansions that Jesus has gone to prepare
For those who abide in His love. [Refrain]
