When you feel weakest, dangers surround,
Subtle temptations, troubles abound,
Nothing seems hopeful, nothing seems glad.
All is despairing ; oftentimes sad.
Keep on believing, Jesus is near.
Keep on believing, there's nothing to fear ;
Keep on believing, this is the way :
Faith in the night as well as the day.
If all were easy, if all were bright.
Where would the cross be ? where would the fight ?
But in the hardness God gives to you
Chances of proving that you are true.
God is your wisdom, God is your might ;
God's ever near you, guiding the right ;
He understands you, knows all you need ;
Trusting in Him you'll surely succeed.
Let us press on, then ; never despair !
Live above feeling, victory's there ;
Jesus can keep us so near to Him,
That nevermore our faith shall grow dim.
