1 Where is your faith, my brother?
This would the Master know,
Asking again the question
Spoken so long ago;
Question of deepest meaning
Ponder it well and say,
Soberly, truly, brother,
Where is your faith today?

Where is your faith, my brother?
Answer while yet you may,
Soberly, truly, brother,
Where is your faith? today?

2 Where is your faith, my brother?
Do you in riches trust,
What will you gold avail you,
When you have turned to dust?
“Riches are not forever”
Thus do the Scriptures say;
Ah! in the great hereafter
What then will be your stay? [Refrain]

3 Where is your faith, my brother?
Lo you on self rely,
Hoping by good endeavor,
Pardon and peace to buy?
Not unto him that worketh
Promise of life is giv’n;
Never may human merit
Enter the gates of heav’n. [Refrain]

4 Where is your faith, my brother?
Dreaming that life is long,
Will you neglect salvation,
List’ning to pleasure’s song?
Oh, do not trust tomorrow,
For it may never come;
Even this night, my brother,
You may be summoned home. [Refrain]

5 Where is your faith, my brother?
Would you salvation gain?
Trust in the name of Jesus,—
All other hope is vain,
Christ is the sure foundation,
Firm amid wind and wave;
“No other name is given.”
Jesus alone can save. [Refrain]

Thomas O. Chisholm was born in Franklin, Kentucky in 1866. His boyhood was spent ona farm and in teaching district schools. He spent five years as editor of the local paper at Franklin. He was converted to Christianity at the age of 26 and soon after was business manager and office editor of the "Pentecostal Hearld" or Louisville, Ky. In 1903 he entered the ministry of the M. E. Church South. His aim in writing was to incorporate as much as Scripture as possible and to avoid flippant or sentimental themes.
