Stanza Poetry Source by First Line
And if you meet with troubles
And trials on the way,
Then cast your care on Jesus,
And don't forget to pray.
Gird on the heav'nly armor
Of faith, and hope, and love;
And when the combat's ended,
He'll take you up above.

O WHEN shall I see Jesus!, Stanza 4
Through grace I am determined
To conquer, though I die;
And then away to Jesus
On wings of love I'll fly;
Farewell to sin and sorrow,
I bid you all adieu,
Then, Oh my friends, prove faithful,
And on your way pursue.

O WHEN shall I see Jesus!, Stanza 3
