is the fourth studio album of the Never Say Die Christian rock band, Petra. It was released in 1981. "The Coloring Song" was a radio hit for the band and sales were higher for this album than the previous. This album set the stage for Petra's success in the 1980s and their next few albums duplicated much of the formula, as well as repeated the "guitar" theme on the album cover.
The album is the first to feature new members
John Slick and Mark Kelly ( keyboards and bass respectively).
StarSong Records later re-issued the album on a single CD with 1979's
. Washes Whiter Than Washes Whiter Than had two tracks cut for space; Never Say Die was included in full.
