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.
2Ranged ’neath Thy victorious banner,
March we onward, sworn to fight
’Gainst the world, the flesh, the devil–
Trusting in our Master’s might.
3Lead us on, and we will follow,
Be at hand to cheer and guide:
Shield us in each dire temptation,
Lest our faltering footsteps slide.
4Shape our manhood by Thy pattern,
Jesu, Lord, our Righteousness,
Make us brave, and true, and loyal,
Teach us Thine own Manliness.
5Soldiers of the Church’s army
Pure in heart must ever be,
Keep before our souls the image
Of Thy peerless purity.
6Meekly Thou didst learn obedience
To Thy Heavenly Father’s will,–
Promptly be it our endeavor
Thy Commandments to fulfill.
7So 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.
Hebrews5:8Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
