Courage, Brother! Do Not Stumble

January 6, 2014 § Leave a comment

Part of my job today is flipping through a beautiful 1934 hymnal. 

Courage, brother! Do not stumble,
Though thy path be dark as night;
There’s a star to guide the humble;
“Trust in God, and do the right.”
Let the road be rough and dreary
And its end far out of sight;
Foot it bravely, strong or weary;
Trust in God,
Trust in God,
Trust in God and do the right.

Some will hate thee, some will love thee,
Some will flatter, some will slight:
Cease from man, and look above thee;
“Trust in God, and do the right.”
Courage, brother! Do not stumble,
Though thy path be dark as night;
There’s a star to guide the humble–
Trust in God,
Trust in God,
Trust in God and do the right.

(Rev. Norman Macleod, 1857)
