Be Thou Faithful Unto Death

by John H. Kurzenknabe


Be thou faithful unto death,
Patiently bear ev'ry trial;
All through toil and self-denial,
Labor till thy latest breath.
Be thou faithful unto death.

Be thou faithful unto death.
What if all the world despises?
Do not heed her vain devices,
Do not yield nor give a breadth:
Be thou faithful unto death.

Be thou faithful unto death.
Never doubt the promise given;
Firmly set thy steps t'ward heaven:
Keep the tempter underneath.
Be thou faithful unto death.

Be thou faithful unto death;
Holy ardor make thee fervent,
Till the Master calls His servant,
Put thy trusty sword to sheath:
Thou'st been faithful unto death.

Chorus

Labor on to win the crown,
Royal honors shall be thine;
Never lay thy armor down
Till the vict'ry's won.
