In a darkened world that is rapidly racing toward the end
I see many Christians compromising like it's the latest trend
I know for God's truth, I must earnestly contend
But, my dear friend, how do I remain faithful?
As the signs become clearer for God's children to see
Lukewarm believers rush madly towards apostasy
And this world beckons so alluringly to you and to me
One question remains, how do I remain faithful?
Soon we'll have a one-world economy, a one-world religion
Tolerance is the byword - they say it's their decision
As worldly Christians quickly lose all conviction
Tell me again, how do I remain faithful?
The world follows doctrines of devils, deception's so strong
Some believers are so blind, they say that nothing's wrong
But God's Word rings out deeply like a resounding gong
And I wonder, how do I remain faithful?
Inside, I have no intention of walking away
But how come the battle seems so strong today?
This world is calling me - I must look away
And find everything I need in Him.
"Come out of their midst, My people, and live righteously
I, your God, have chosen you from all eternity
Keep My Word, My children, awaken and be free
Blessed are those faithful servants I find waiting for Me."
Only Jesus' blood can rescue from the bondage of sin
Only God's power can stop us from giving in
Only His Spirit can strengthen and purify within
By His compelling love, I can remain faithful.
