34. Faithful Teacher

1. I desire to become a useful man of God

So then I must work on my character each day,

I need to be correct, for this I’ll give my best,

Taking His cross, more of Christ I will obtain.


Listening intently to the Word of the Lord,

Ruminating and transmitting more precious it becomes,

Not wasting time with foolish questionings,

But rather consecrating my life for His building.


Faithful teacher, good soldier,

An athlete that is crowned, labouring farmer,

A workman that is never ashamed.


2. Willing to suffer for the cause of the Lord,

Submissive to the will of the One who enlisted me,

I will fight the good fight and not deny the faith,

Watchfully awaiting the coming of the Lord.


I press on toward the goal with submission to my Lord,

Seeking for the prize, an overcomer I will be,

Being restricted today, and training my self,

Fleeing youthful lusts must be my life today.


Faithful teacher, good soldier,

An athlete that is crowned, labouring farmer,

A workman that is never ashamed.


3. Labouring all the time in the service of the Lord,

With patience, perseverance living out God’s love,

Sowing with abundance good harvest we will have,

To die and resurrect is the way for us to reap.


Always cutting straight the word of the truth,

It becomes reality by knowing our God,

Having fellowship, humble I will be,

Practicing and praying, good character I’ll have.


Faithful teacher, good soldier,

An athlete that is crowned, labouring farmer,

A workman that is never ashamed.
