YOU MUST BE FAITHFUL

You must be faithful over a few things to be ruler over many things.

Be thou faithful unto death and God will give you a crown of life.

If you have a song to sing, faithfully sing that song.

If you have some love to show, show it the whole day long.

If you have a kind word to say—try to say it each and every day.

If you have a prayer to pray—pray on in Jesus’ name.

Be ye steadfast, immovable, always a-bounding in the work of God.

Know that your labor is not in vain, you shall receive a just reward.

Be thou faithful and God will give you a crown of life.
