Rise, O My Soul—Pursue the Path

Hymn 245 C.M. 1. Rise, O my soul—pursue the path By ancient worthies trod; Aspiring, view those holy men, Who lived and walked with God. 2. Though dead, they speak in reason's ear, And in example live; Their faith, and hope, and mighty deeds, Still fresh instruction give. 3. 'Twas thro' the Lamb's most precious blood, They conquered every foe; To his almighty power and grace, Their crowns of life they owe. 4. Lord, may I ever keep in view The patterns thou hast given, And ne'er forsake the blessed road, That led them safe to heav'n.
