Hymn/Song Information

I WOULD BE TRUE




I would be true, for
there are those who trust me;
I would be pure, for there are those who care;
I would be strong, for there is much to suffer;
|:I would be brave,
for there is much to dare. :|


I would be friend of allóthe foe, the friendless;
I would be giving, and forget the gift;
I would be humble, for I know my weakness;
|:I would look up, and laugh,
and love and lift. :|


I would be faithful through
each passing moment;
I would be constantly in touch with God;
I would be strong to follow where He leads me;
|:I would have faith to keep
the path Christ trod. :|


Who is so low that I am not his brother?
Who is so high that Iíve no path to him?
Who is so poor, that I may not feel his hunger?
|:Who is so rich I may not pity him?:|

5. Who is so hurt I may not know his heartache?
Who sings for joy my heart may never share?
Who in Godís heaven has passed
beyond my vision?
|:Who to Hellís depths
where I may never fare? :|


May none, then, call on me for understanding,
May none, then, turn to me for help in pain,
And drain alone his bitter cup of sorrow,
|:Or find he knocks upon my heart in vain. :|
