Like Caleb and Joshua stand,
On the borders of the promised land,
Obeying Jehovah’s command, saying,

As for me and my house,
As for me and my house,
As for me and my house,
We will serve the Lord.

Refrain

Well able to enter the land,
Tell it out to every doubting band;
Faith bringeth the triumph God planned, saying,

Refrain

Walled cities go seven times round,
Perseverance is with victory crowned;
Sin giants of habit are bound, saying,
