Advent Hymnals

783. LEAVE THE REST TO GOD

Christ in Song,

1.
He who seeks the truth, and trembles
At the dangers he must brave,
Merits not the name of Freeman;
He at best is but a slave.

2.
Be thou like the noble ancients:
Scorn the threat that bids thee fear;
Speak!  no matter what betide thee;
Let them strike, but let them hear.

3.
Be thou like the first apostles,
Be thou like heroic Paul;
If a free thought seeks expression,
Speak it boldly!  speak it all!

4.
Fearlessly face thine accusers!
Scorn the prison, rack, or rod!
If thou hast a truth to utter,
Speak, and leave the rest to God.
