Representative Text

1 Trust thou in God! Trust thou in God!
No evil can thy soul betide
While thou art close to Jesus’ side;
Trust thou in God! Trust thou in God!
Along life’s road trust thou in God!

2 Have faith in God! Have faith in God!
And naught can separate thy soul
From His divine and safe control;
Have faith in God! Have faith in God!
Along life’s road have faith in God!

3 Be true to God! Be true to God!
He has been good and kind to thee,
And evermore thy friend will be;
Be true to God! Be true to God!
Along life’s road be true to God!

4 Go on in faith, in trusting faith!
The heav’n where soon we hope to be
Is reached by way of Calvary;
Go on in faith, along life’s road;
The goal is reached by trust in God.
