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.


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


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