Hymn/Song Information

FORTITUDE




Why should the dread of sinful man
Ensnare and vex my soul?
O, for that fortitude which can
My ev’ry fear control.


Shall I offend a holy God;
And sacrifice my peace,
To shun a mortal's threat'ning rod,
A friend or two to please?


I must obey the God I love,
Tho’ all the world contemus;
One smile from him, I prize above
The richest earthly gems.


Hark! O my soul—methinks I hear
Jehovah`s awful voice—
“Fear not, thou worm. for I am near
I well approve thy choice.


While mortal revile and frown
I ’ll smile upon thy soul;
And thou shalt tread the tempter down
While I his rage control."


Lord, I resign me to thy will,
Thy wisdom 1 adore!
I yield to thee—thy word fulfil,
And let me doubt no more.
