“Men may misjudge thy aim, think they have cause to blame,
say thou art wrong –
Hold thou thy quiet way, heed not what men may say;
Christ is the Judge – not they;
fear not, be strong!
Be brave, and dare to stand alone against the foe;
thy Saviour stood alone for thee
long, long ago.
Be not a coward in the fight – look up! Be strong!
The morn of victory is near –
the day of song.”
(Final words of a covenant Charles Cowman made with God)
