2 Corinthians 4:8-10

            1. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
            2. Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
            3. Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus
              might be made manifest in our body.

          Never be sad or desponding,
          If thou hast faith to believe;
          Grace, for the duties before thee,
          Ask of thy God and receive.

            Chorus
            Never give up, never give up,
            Never give up to thy sorrows,
            Jesus will bid them depart;
            Trust in the Lord, trust in the Lord,
            Sing when your trials are greatest,
            Trust in the Lord and take heart.

          What if thy burdens oppress thee;
          What tho' thy life may be drear;
          Look on the side that is brightest,
          Pray, and thy path will be clear.

            Chorus
            Never give up, never give up,
            Never give up to thy sorrows,
            Jesus will bid them depart;
            Trust in the Lord, trust in the Lord,
            Sing when your trials are greatest,
            Trust in the Lord and take heart.

          Never be sad or desponding,
          There is a morrow for thee;
          Soon thou shalt dwell in its brightness,
          There with the Lord thou shalt be.

            Chorus
            Never give up, never give up,
            Never give up to thy sorrows,
            Jesus will bid them depart;
            Trust in the Lord, trust in the Lord,
            Sing when your trials are greatest,
            Trust in the Lord and take heart.

          Never be sad or desponding,
          Lean on the arm of thy Lord;
          Dwell in the depths of His mercy,
          Thou shalt receive thy reward.

            Chorus
            Never give up, never give up,
            Never give up to thy sorrows,
            Jesus will bid them depart;
            Trust in the Lord, trust in the Lord,
            Sing when your trials are greatest,
            Trust in the Lord and take heart.
