God, bless Your church with strength! Wherever we may be, Upbuild Your servants as we work In common ministry. Urge us from fledgling faith To venture and to soar Through open skies, to sing the praise Of Christ whom we adore.
God, bless Your church with life! May all our branches thrive, Unblemished, wholesome, bearing fruit, Abundantly alive. From You, one holy vine, In freedom may we grow; Sustain us in our mission, Lord, Your love and peace to show.
God, bless Your church with hope! Despite chaotic days, May we in chaos shine to light A pathway through life’s maze. May justice be our aim, And kindness ours to share, In humbleness O may we walk, Assured our God is there!
In the fight, say, does your heart grow weary? Do you find your path is rough and thorny? And above the sky is dark and stormy? Never mind, go on! Lay aside all fear, and onward pressing, Bravely fight, and God will give His blessing; Though the war at times may prove distressing, Never mind, go on!
When the road we tread is rough, Let us bear in mind, In our Savior strength enough We may always find; Though the fighting may be tough Let our motto be: Go on, go on to victory!
Faithful be, delaying not to follow Where Christ leads, though it may be through sorrow; If the strife should fiercer grow tomorrow, Never mind, go on! Cheerful be, it will your burdens lighten, One glad heart will always others brighten; Though the strife the coward’s soul may frighten, Never mind, go on!
When downhearted, look away to Jesus, Who for you did shed His blood most precious; Let us say, though all the world should hate us; Never mind, go on! Do your best in fighting for your Savior, For His sake fear not to lose men’s favor; If beside you should a comrade waver, Never mind, go on!
