If For A Christian

If you can stand before false accusations,
And lift your head in grace and face the lies;
If you can join in another’s celebrations,
While your life falls in ruin before your eyes;
If you can grieve with others who are grieving,
Yet find in Christ a peace beyond all grief’s;
If you can love those who are unbelieving,
And yet stand firm and sure on your beliefs;
If you can lose all wealth and earthly treasure,
And count it as the loss of so much dust;
If you can scorn success by mortal measure,
Striving for rewards that cannot rust;
If you can put your hand to Christian labour,
Be buried with Christ, your sins all put to end;
If every day you can love your neighbour,
You will receive the crown of life, my friend.
