Courage for These Days by Raymond A. Foss

Hope in our Lord
the future that he promised
courage for these days
while we toil here on earth

Courage to follow Jesus
on the servant’s path
to help our neighbors
out of your boundless love

Courage to heed
the Spirit’s callings
stepping out in faith
to do our loving part

Love to mend
offering his peace
living by his example
that all may know Christ

Words to speak
across the world
testifying to his power
that all will hear the good news

Taking up our cross
using our gifts in his service
courage in these days
while we toil here below
