“As for me and my house,
we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15

Torch Bearer1. See how the wicked kingdom
    Is falling every day,
And still our blessed Jesus
    Is winning souls away;
But O how I am tempted,
    No mortal tongue can tell,
So often I’m surrounded
    With enemies from hell.

2. With weeping and with praying,
    My Jesus I have found,
To crucify old nature,
    And make his grace abound.
Dear children, don’t be weary,
    But march on in the way;
For Jesus will stand by you,
    And be your guard and stay.

3. If sinners will serve Satan,
    And join with one accord,
Dear brethren, as for my part,
    I’m bound to serve the Lord;
And if you will go with me,
    Pray give to me your hand,
And we’ll march on together,
    Unto the promised land.

4. Through troubles and distresses,
    We’ll make our way to God;
Though earth and hell oppose us,
    We’ll keep the heavenly road.
Our Jesus went before us,
    And many sorrows bore,
And we who follow after,
    Can never meet with more.
