Lead On, O King Eternal

  1. 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.
  2. 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,
    but deeds of love and mercy,
    the heav’nly kingdom comes.
  3. 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.
