|1||“Lord of power and might, the Giver
Of all good,” to Thee we sing–
Captain, Thou, of our salvation,
Our High Priest, Liege-Lord and King.
|2||Ranged ’neath Thy victorious banner,
March we onward, sworn to fight
’Gainst the world, the flesh, the devil–
Trusting in our Master’s might.
|3||Lead us on, and we will follow,
Be at hand to cheer and guide:
Shield us in each dire temptation,
Lest our faltering footsteps slide.
|4||Shape our manhood by Thy pattern,
Jesu, Lord, our Righteousness,
Make us brave, and true, and loyal,
Teach us Thine own Manliness.
|5||Soldiers of the Church’s army
Pure in heart must ever be,
Keep before our souls the image
Of Thy peerless purity.
|6||Meekly Thou didst learn obedience
To Thy Heavenly Father’s will,–
Promptly be it our endeavor
Thy Commandments to fulfill.
|7||So when life’s incessant warfare,
And the strife with sin are o’er,
Thou wilt grant Thy faithful liege-men
Rest with Thee forevermore. Amen.
