And if you meet with troubles
And trials on the way,
Then cast your cares on Jesus,
And donít forget to pray.
Gird on the heavínly armor
Of faith, and hope, and love,
And when the combatís ended,
Heíll take you up above.

Through grace I am determined
To conquer, though I die;
And then away to Jesus
On wings of love Iíll fly.
Farewell to sin and sorrow,
I bid you all adieu,
Then, O my friends, prove faithful,
And on your way pursue.
