1. If thou wouldst be partaker
    Of endless life, O son of pride,
To faith submit thy reason;
    Love God, not popularity;
Hate thy own besetting sin.
Hate thy own besetting sin.

2. Walk humbly with thy Maker,
    In spirit of the Crucified;
Fear God at ev’ry season
    With holy regularity;
Love all, foe, or friend, or kin.
Love all, foe, or friend, or kin.
(So shalt thou, at thy latter end,)

3. By alms, with pray’r and fasting,
    Have right with Jesus to ascend
To glory everlasting,
    Which now by faith and charity,
Thou may surely hope to win.
Thou may surely hope to win.
