Whatever may happen, look out for, and pray
the gospel of Christ to make progress his way:
the gospel’s advance be our deepest desire,
though Satan oppose and our ways be through fire.
Whatever may happen, we live or we die,
we serve Christ while here or we meet him on high:
the good of God’s people, their joy and their faith,
and progress, are all that can tie us to earth.
Whatever may happen, Lord help us to live
adorning the gospel in which we believe,
united with all who adhere to your Word,
in faith firm, untoppled, whatever’s occurred.
Tune: 11 11 11 11
