Keep your faith in the God above,
And faith in His righteous truth,
'Twill bring you back to your absent love
And the joys of a vanished youth.
You'll smile once more when your tears are shed,
Meet trouble and swiftly rout it,
For faith is the strength of the soul inside,
And lost is the man without it.
May we have increased faith and trust in
the Lord and in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
--Minnie K. Stratton, Dec. 27, 1941
