Fearless and faithful, trusting and true,
Loyal to Jesus, in all I do;
Seeking His glory, loving His laws,
Ready and willing to honor His cause.

Refrain

So would I ever
Walk in His ways,
Bearing His standard,
Shouting His praise.

Fearless and faithful, strong in the Lord,
Firm as an anchor, my hope His Word;
Over the conflicts, raging within,
Victory promised thro’ grace I shall win.

Refrain

Fearless and faithful, earnest in prayer,
Living for others, their burdens share;
Cheering the lowly, poor and oppressed,
Pointing to Jesus, the Giver of rest.

Refrain
