Give me faith, Lord, like a child
Who's humble, guileless, true--
A child whose worries never last--
A child with simple things to do.
Give me courage like a man
Who's lion-bold and strong--
A man who's brave from first to last--
A man who's working all day long.
Thus I'll grow in holiness
With power not my own--
A childlike faith, a manly zeal--
Both gifts from You alone.
Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it. (Jesus, in Mark 10:15 ESV)
Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
(1 Corinthians 16:13 ESV)
