    Be Faithful

    Tune—“Be Kind to the Loved Ones at Home.”PSAS 133.4

    O brother, be faithful! soon Jesus will come,
    For whom we have waited so long;
    Oh! soon we shall enter our glorious home,
    And join in the conqueror’s song.
    O brother, be faithful! for why should we prove
    Unfaithful to him who has shown
    Such deep, such unbounded and infinite love—
    Who died to redeem us his own.
    PSAS 133.5

    O brother, be faithful! the city of gold,
    Prepared for the good and the blest,
    Is waiting its portals of pearl to unfold,
    And welcome thee into thy rest;
    Then brother, prove faithful! not long shall we stay,
    In weariness here and forlorn;
    Time’s dark night of sorrow is wearing away,
    We haste to the glorious morn.
    PSAS 133.6

    O brother, be faithful! He soon will descend,
    Creation’s Omnipotent King,
    While legions of angels his chariot attend,
    And palm-wreaths of victory bring.
    O brother, be faithful! and soon thou shalt hear
    Thy Saviour pronounce the glad word,
    Well done, faithful servant, thy title is clear
    To enter the joy of thy Lord.
    PSAS 134.1

    O brother, be faithful! eternity’s years
    Shall tell for thy faithfulness now,
    When bright smiles of gladness shall scatter thy tears,
    And a coronet gleam on thy brow.
    O brother, be faithful! the promise is sure,
    That waits for the faithful and tried;
    To reign with the ransomed, immortal and pure,
    And ever with Jesus abide.
    PSAS 134.2
