Rejoice, believer, in the Lord - Perseverance
(John Newton/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Perseverance.

1. Rejoice, believer, in the Lord,
  who makes your cause his own;
the hope that's built upon his word
  can ne'er be overthrown. PDF - Midi

2. Though many foes beset your road,
  and feeble is your arm;
your life is hid with Christ in God,
  beyond the reach of harm.

3. Weak as your are, you shall not faint,
  or, fainting, shall not die;
Jesus, the strength of every saint,
  will aid you from on high.

4. Though sometimes unperceived by sense,
  faith sees him always near,
a Guide, a Glory, a Defence;
  then what have you to fear?

5. As surely as he overcame,
  and triumphed once for you,
so surely you that love his name
  shall triumph in him too.

(2,3: Colossians 3,2. – 3,3: Isaiah 40,29.)
