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.
Godliness is gain for me and you—
Let us stand in Christ, the Truth.
