1To a land from Christ’s faith sundered
From a distant shore there came
Great Augustine, saint and hero,
God’s glad gospel to proclaim.
2To the Saxon King he journeyed,
Caring naught for wind and wave,
Told of One Who for men suffered,
Rose triumphant from the grave.
3Soon the Pagan King he baptised,
Now no longer Satan’s thrall,
And the people in their thousands
Came, obedient to his call.
4Still the faith Augustine strove for,
Leading forth his fearless band,
Nothing changèd, nothing weakened,
Rules and sways our native land.
5Keep us, Lord, both now and ever
In Thine all-embracing care,
Holding fast the faith we cherish,
Loyal to the Name we bear. Amen.
Acts16:10And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.
