153. Keep Thy Faith Steady

1 Keep thy faith steady, my brother,
Shedding its beautiful ray,
Clear as the brow of the morning,
Bright as the eye of the day.

Chorus:
Tranquilly shining, never declining,
Keep thy faith steady, and wait, oh, wait on the Lord.

2 Keep thy faith steady, my brother,
Firm as a rock let it be;
Pray, and believe when thou prayest,
Love hath an answer for thee. [Chorus]

3 Keep thy faith steady, my brother,
Looking to Jesus alone;
Then will the blessing thou seekest
Drop like the dew from his throne. [Chorus]

4 Keep thy faith steady, my brother,
Souls by its light may be won;
Trust till thy journey is over,
Trust till thy life-work is done. [Chorus]
