Is your hope of glo­ry bright?
Are you walk­ing in the light,
Ever shin­ing from the Sav­ior’s throne?
Have you gone to Him for rest,
When your heart was sore op­pressed?
Are you trust­ing in His arm alone?


Are you walk­ing in the light,
In the bless­èd, bless­èd light?
Is it shin­ing in your soul to­day?
With a firm abid­ing faith
That will tri­umph ov­er death,
Are you walk­ing in the old, old way?

Have you tak­en up the cross?
Do you count the world but dross,
For the splen­dor you in Christ may see?
To His quest­ion, Who will go,
And His love to sin­ners show,
Will you an­swer Here am I, send me?


Tho’ your foes may all unite,
Will you bat­tle for the right,
And the won­ders of the Lord pro­claim?
Will you stand with cour­age brave
And the roy­al ban­ner wave,
Shouting vic­t’ry thro’ the Mas­ter’s name?


O the bliss of those who trust
In the on­ly wise and just,
And are look­ing for a home above;
If your lot with them is cast
You will an­chor safe at last
In the ha­ven of eter­nal love.
