126 Courage, Brother, Do Not Stumble
(COURAGE, BROTHER. 8,7,8,7,D.)
Norman Macleod, 1857 Arthur S. Sullivan, 1872
 

1.Courage, brother, do not stumble,
Though thy path be dark as night;
There's a star to guide the humble—
Trust in god and do the right!
Though the road be rough and dreary,
And it's en far out of sight,
Foot it bravely, strong or weary;—
Trust in God, trust in good,
Trust in God and do the right
2.Perish policy and cunning,
Perish all that fears the light!
Whether losing, whether winning,
Trust in God and do the right!
Some will hate the, some will love thee,
Some will flatter, some will slight;
Cease from man, and look above thee,—
Trust in God, trust in good,
Trust in God and do the right
3.Simple rule and safest guiding,
Inward peace and inward might,
Star upon our path abiding,
Trust in God and do the right!
Courage, brother, do not stumble,—
Tho' thy path be dark as night;
There's a star to guide the humble,—
Trust in God, trust in good,
Trust in God and do the right! Amen
