"Shrink Not Ye Saints, Nor Falter" encourages us to hold strong, stay faithful, and look forward to the glory of God when Christ returns.

Text: Toni Thomas   Music: Brett Stewart

Verse 1

Shrink not, ye Saints, nor falter

But rise to meet the day!

We stand unbound, unbroken

With Christ our lasting stay.

The world, as He forewarned us,

Grows darker ere the dawn;

Shine on, ye Saints! A prelude

To the glory when Christ comes!

 

Verse 2

Shrink not, ye Saints, take courage!

Though perils we endure,

But small shall be their moment:

Their bounds are set and sure.

Each hour of ache and longing,

Each heart where tears have sprung,

Will find the woe forgotten

In the glory when Christ comes!

Verse 3

Shrink not, ye Saints, be faithful

Though many be deceived.

When clouds of doubt would gather,

Our choice is to believe.

Division and indiff'rence

Shall melt before the Son,

While faith is turned to knowledge

In the glory when Christ comes!

 

Verse 4

Shrink not, ye Saints, remember

That Christ did not demur:

All hope, all sin upon Him,

Our suff'ring He endured.

Take up your cross and follow,

Through sorrows and beyond

To rise with no regretting

In the glory when Christ comes!
