“In the world you shall have tribulation;
but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

To-Egypt1. I find myself placed in a state of probation,
    Which God has commanded us well to improve,
And I am resolved to regard all His precepts,
    And on in the way of obedience to move.
I know I must go through great tribulation,
    And many sore conflicts on every hand;
But grace will support me and comfort my spirit,
    And I shall be able for ever to stand.

2. I’m called to contend with the powers of darkness,
    And many sore conflicts I have to pass through;
O Jesus, be with me in every battle,
    And help me my enemies all to subdue;
If Thou, gracious Lord, will only be with me,
    To aid and direct me, then all will be right;
Apollyon, with all of his powerful forces,
    In Thy name and Thy strength I shall soon put to flight.

3. And when I must cross the cold stream of Jordan,
    I’ll bid all my sorrows a final adieu,
And hasten away to the land of sweet Canaan,
    Where, Christians, I hope I shall there meet with you.
That rest into which my soul shall then enter,
    Is perfectly glorious, and never shall end—
A rest of exemption from warfare and labor,
    A rest in the bosom of Jesus, my friend.

4. And more than exemption from fighting and hardship
    My gracious Redeemer will grant unto me;
A portion of bliss He has promised to give me,
    And true to that promise He surely will be.
Yes, I shall receive and always inherit
    A happy reception and truly divine.
For which all the praises and glory, my Savior
    Are due unto Thee, and shall ever be Thine.
