#319: I Would Be True

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

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.

2

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.

3

I would be prayerful thru each busy moment;

I would be be constantly in touch with God.

I would be tuned to hear His slightest whisper;

I would have faith to keep the path Christ trod —

I would have faith to keep the path Christ trod.
