619 ~ Lead On, O King Eternal


Lead on, O King Eternal, The day of march has come; Henceforth in fields of conquest Thy tents shall be our home; Through days of preparation Thy grace has made us strong, And now, O King Eternal, We lift our battle song.


Lead on, O King Eternal, Till sin's fierce war shall cease, And holiness shall whisper The sweet Amen of peace; For not with swords, loud clashing, Nor roll of stirring drums, With deeds of love and mercy, The heavenly kingdom comes.


Lead on, O King Eternal, We follow, not with fears, For gladness breaks like morning Where'er Thy face appears; Thy cross is lifted o'er us; We journey in its light; The crown awaits the conquest; Lead on, O God of might.
