Stand up for the truth without falter,
Though pathways of sin may look bright;
Yet sooner or later they’ll plunge you
In misery “darkness and night.”
Stand firm! Tho’ the tempter revile you,
Stand firm like the oak in the wood;
No matter what ills may bequile you,
Stand up for the true and the good.
Stand up for the truth! be in earnest;
Whatever you say or you do;
For this is he noblest of lessons,
The bible is teaching to you.
Stand firm, all your days, for hereafter,
Oh! sweet are the joys you will share;
Stand firm! and your Heavenly Father
Will keep you forever in care.
