Representative Text

1 Thro’ the sunshine and the shadow,
Underneath dark skies, or blue,
Fling your colors to the breezes,
Let your life ring true.

Refrain:
Let your life ring true,
In ev’rything you do;
For the glory of your Master,
Let your life ring true;
Choose the way of life eternal—
Light will shine on you!
Stand up boldly for the Savior,
Let your life ring true.

2 There are tempted souls around us,
Needing strength for trials new;
For the sake of many others,
Let your life ring true. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ your crosses may be heavy,
And your earthly friends be few,
Jesus will be near to help you,
Let your life ring true. [Refrain]
