1. “Let not thy hands be slack,”

Live not in vain;

Out on life’s lonely track

Men toil in pain.

Play thou a brother’s part,

Strength, love, and hope impart,

Bind thou the fainting heart

Look up again!

2. “Let not thy hands be slack,”

Grip thou thy sword!

Why should’st thou courage lack?

Think of thy Lord.

Did He not fight for thee?

Stronger than all is He,

And He thy strength will be,

Rest on His word.

3. “Let not thy hands be slack,”

Haste to the fray!

Dream not of turning back:

Life is not play!

Gird thou thy armour on,

Fight till the battle’s won,

Then shall thy Lord’s “Well done!”

More than repay!

4. “Let not thy hands be slack!

Fear not! Be strong!”

Cease not to make attack

On every wrong.

Press on for truth and right,

Hold high the Gospel light

Expel the dirge of night

With heaven’s song!

5. “Let not thy hands be slack,”

The days fly fast.

Lost moments come not back

From the dark past.

Then be not slack of hand!

Help thou the weak to stand!

To God and Fatherland

Give all thou hast!

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
