1 While struggling in a maze of doubt,
With sore temptations vexed,
I seemed to hear our Father say:
“My child, be not perplexed.
I’ll guide thee with My sleepless eye;
My word is ever sure;
Strength shall be equal to thy day;
Endeavor and endure.”

And laid my loved ones low,
And filled the garden of my joys
With plants of pain and woe,
The Father’s voice still cheered my heart:
“My child, My word is sure;
Sufficient grace shall meet they need;
Endeavor and endure.”

3 “Endeavor and endure, My child,
Along the narrow way.
What tho’ the night be long and dark?
It ends in glorious day.
Go bravely on, and trust My love;
My promises are sure;
I’m with thee always, never fear!
Endeavor and endure.”
