I WOULD BE TRUE

Howard A. Walter, Joseph Y. Peek

I would be true, for there are those who trust me
I would be pure, for there are those who care
I would be strong, for there is much to suffer
I would be brave, for there is much to dare

I would be brave, for there is much to dare

 

I would be friend of all—the foe, the friendless
I would be giving, and forget the gift
I would be humble, for I know my weakness
I would look up, and laugh, and love, and lift

I would look up, and laugh, and love, and lift

 

I would be faithful through each passing moment
I would be constantly in touch with God
I would be strong to follow where He leads me
I would have faith to keep the path Christ trod

I would have faith to keep the path Christ trod
