Representative Text

1 Though trials oft beset me,
Though scorn’d by wicked men,
Though struggling with temptation,
Though in the lion’s den,

My God will send his angel,—
The lions will not harm;
He surely will deliver,—
I’ll trust his mighty arm.

2 Though walking in the darkness,
Though hedg’d about with sin,
Though battles rage around me,
Though fightings fierce within, [Refrain]

3 Though weary with my toiling,
Though burdens weigh me down,
Though doubts and fears annoy me,
Though far off seems the crown, [Refrain]

4 Though long and drear the journey,
We journey not alone;
Though deep and dark the valley,
The crossing will be soon. [Refrain]
