Lead On, O King Eternal

The "school Bible" seems to have disappeared so I'll type in the words of a hymn I enjoy playing.

Lead on, O King Eternal, the day of march has come; henceforth in fields of conquest Your tents shall be our home. Through days of preparation Your 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 wherever Your face appears; Your cross is lifted over us; we journey in its light: the crown awaits the conquest; lead on, O God of might.
