Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Numbers 13:30
Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
Stand like Caleb, tho’ the world oppose;
Victory’s keynote is believing;
There’s no danger from ten thousand foes,
God’s almighty pow’r receiving.
Stand like Caleb! fear no foe,
Trust, ye doubting, in Jehovah’s might;
God is leading, forward go,
Never falter in the cause of right.
Are there giants in the upward way?
Are there cities
walled to heaven?
Glorious vict’ry shall be ours each day,
Trusting God by whom ’tis given.
There’s a land with
milk and honey blest;
Why be faithless and fainthearted?
On Jehovah’s strong assurance rest,
Sin’s defense is now departed.
