    Time was I shrank from what was right,
    Through fear of what was wrong;
    I would not brave the sacred fight,
    Because the foe was strong.


    But now I cast that finer sense
    And sorer shame aside ;
    Such dread of sin was indolence,
    Such aim of Heaven weighs pride.


    So, when my Saviour calls, I rise,
    And calmly do my best ;
    Leaving to Him, with silent eyes
    Of hope, and fear, the rest.


    I step, I mount where He has led ;
    Men count my haltings o'er ;
    I know them ; yet, though self I dread,
    I love His precept more.
