Godliness is Gain: a 1 Timothy hymn

by, Todd R. Chipman

——-

Lest some should go astray,

Let us all stand firm and stay.

Fixed, our hope in God’s grace—

He, the Sovereign Potentate.

——-

King of kings and Lord of lords,

Look to Him for our reward.

In the world, no treasure stored.

He our Judge forevermore.

——-

We, on earth, the house of God,

Showing forth His favor strong.

Lives of patience, suffering long—

Our behavior sings His song.

——-

Phrase on phrase, His holy word;

When we hear, our hearts are stirred.

Our progress now all observe,

Through distress, we are held firm.

——-

Chorus:

Godliness is gain for me and you—

Let us stand in Christ, the Truth.
