The Doctor Help. Words to M&S hymn. (11) RE: Help. Words to M&S hymn. 17 Aug 09


I haven't found the first one, but 'Have courage' is number 1151, and goes:-
1.You're starting, my boy, on life's journey, along the grand highway
of life;
You'll meet with a thousand temptations - each city with evil is
rife.
This world is a stage of excitement, there's danger wherever you go;
But if you are tempted in weakness, have courage, my boy, to say No!

Ch:Have courage, my boy, to say No! Have courage, my boy, to say No!
   Have courage, my boy, have courage, my boy,
   Have courage, my boy, to say No!

2.In courage, my boy, lies your safety, when you the long journey
begin;
Your trust in a heavenly Father will keep you unspotted from sin.
Temptations will go on increasing, as streams from a rivulet flow;
But if you'd be true to your manhood, have courage, my boy, to say
No!

3.Be careful in choosing companions; seek only the brave and the
true;
And stand by your friends when in trial - ne'er changing the old
for the new,
And when by false friends you are tempted the taste of the winecup
to know,
With firmness, with patience, and kindness, have courage, my boy, to
say No!

My copy is only the 1200 Pieces, so it's possible the other one is in the expanded volume.
