Patiently enduring

Lyrics: Bjarne Johnsen | Melody: Oliver Tangen | Vocals: Dorothy Cinnamon

“Patiently enduring still, don’t grow weary, friend” – this uplifting song is an encouragement to continue on God’s way, fighting against sin. It is written by Bjarne Johnsen and Oliver Tangen and sung here by Dorothy Cinnamon.

Does it often feel like progress here is slow?
Hesitant, you wonder now, “Can I reach the goal?”
Don’t forget faith’s heroes; they have entered in.
Patience, battles we must have, the crown of life to win.

Patiently enduring still, don’t grow weary, friend.
Looking at the author of our faith – you’ll take courage there.

You who gladly carry burdens from the Lord.
Caring, serving in His church, sharing God’s good word.
Or at home you’re serving, days can look the same.
You were pressing on with hope and then new trials came.

Patiently enduring still, you will reach the goal.
Formed and moulded by God’s loving hand, yours the victor’s crown.

Freed from sin and bondage, as before God’s face
You are gaining riches within that sacred place.
And when the bride’s presented to our father, God,
Then her life will be revealed; the pathway that she trod.

Patiently enduring still, don’t grow weary friend.
Looking at the author of our faith – you’ll take courage there.

Patiently enduring still, you will reach the goal.
Formed and moulded by God’s loving hand, yours the victor’s crown.
