Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16


Verse 1: Christian virtues, they are so precious, we must have them, thus saith His word. We must follow, ev’ry day live them, or dis-please our Savior and Lord.
Verse 2: To our faith, Lord, help us add virtue, knowledge gained by loving Thy word; Temp’rance, patience, godliness follow, brotherly kindness mingled with love. Help us, Father, ever grow stronger.
Chorus: Help us, Father, ever grow stronger. Turn our lives away from sin. Let us shirk our duty no longer. Help us grow by following Him.
Verse 3: When these things are ever increasing, we are fruitful rather than blind. Let us practice, and never stumble, with our Savior foremost in mind.
