1. Stand firm, stand firm, be patient,
our Lord's return is near! James 5:7
Stand tall against temptation,
stand strong and have no fear.
Let feeble hands be strong now,
Let weak knees not give way, Isaiah 35:3
Remind the faltering hearts:
"Your God will come again"! Isaiah 35:4
2. Hold on, Hold on, be steadfast,
we're ever on God's mind. Luke 1:48
Hold on, and seek His mercy -
His mercy you will find. Luke 1:50
For as through all the ages,
the humble He will lift, Luke 1:52
To those who trust His mercy
He gives Himself as Gift.
3. Advance! Advance! God's people!
The Kingdom must grow on! Matthew 11:12
We'll go where Jesus leads us
We'll march till Kingdom come!
And though we suffer violence, Matthew 11:12
and though the road gets rough,
we know our Lord is coming, James 5:7
and His grace is enough! 2 Corinthians 12:9
