With the shield of faith in hand,
Fearless, let what may befall;
Nothing fill thee with dismay,
Hunger, toil, or length of way,
In the strength of Jesus boast;
Never, never quit thy post.

2 Let Thy presence go with me,
Savior, else I dare not move;
With Thine aid, and led by Thee,
I will go, constrained by love;
Serve Thy cause with all my might,
Deeming every burden light;
And, if favored with success,
To Thee render all the praise.
