Be faithful unto death, and I will give you a crown of life.@Revelation 2:10

Anonymous.

St. Denio Welsh tune; from Caniadau y Cyssegr, by John Roberts, 1839 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Be firm and be faithful; desert not the right;
The brave become bolder the darker the night.
Then up and be doing, though cowards may fail;
Thy duty pursuing, dare all and prevail.

If scorn be thy portion, if hatred and loss,
If stripes or a prison, remember the cross.
God watches above thee, and He will requite;
Forsake those that love thee, but never the right.
