Lyrics

Christian, falter not, neither be afraid;
Clouds may gather thick, darkness settle down;
Storms may beat on thee, but be not dismayed,
Look to Christ and Him alone.

Refrain

We can trust, firmly trust,
Safely trust in Christ alone;
In His strength we stand. Guided by His hand,
We shall surely reach our home.

Should the way seem rough, dangers thickly rise,
And thine eyes grow dim in the darksome night;
Heart grow sick and faint, Christian, lift thine eyes,
And the Lord shall give thee light.

Refrain

Oh, what peace they know, who in Christ abide,
Folded in His arms, peacefully they rest;
In His faithfulness safely they confide,
And in Him they’re truly blest.
