|1||Thine Lord are we; the consecration sign
Is sealèd on our brow,
And hearts and voices, fired by love divine,
Are lifted to Thee now.
|2||Our souls are strong, by grace divinely fed,
Not given with sparing hand;
Through storm and sunshine may we still be led
Unto the promised land.
|3||Within our hands is grasped the Spirit’s sword,
Two-edged and keenly bright,
Wherewith to wage the warfare of the Lord
In His sure-promised might.
|4||In vision high there gleams the victor’s crown,
When this world’s strife is o’er
Before His throne to be in praise cast down
Who liveth evermore.
|5||Thine, Lord, are we, whatever life may bring,
Though good or ill Thou send,
We still are servants of the heavenly King,
As on towards rest we wend. Amen.
|1 Samuel||22:13||And Saul said unto him, Why have ye conspired against me, thou and the son of Jesse, in that thou hast given him bread, and a sword, and hast inquired of God for him, that he should rise against me, to lie in wait, as at this day?
