1 O Lord Jesus, hand in hand
we, your host, united stand;
called from heaven and earth and sea,
in your service, Lord, are we.
2 Lightnings round about us dart,
grant us an untroubled heart;
onward with your banners still,
lead according to your will.
3 Wars rage round you everywhere:
let us in your victory share
which, amid hell's night and pain,
on the cross you died to gain.
4 Burst on us, eternal ray,
mid the chaos of our day;
mark our place while battles roll,
show our course and Zion's goal.
5 Make your warriors, Lord most high,
clean in heart and clear in eye,
cheerful, thankful, day by day;
turn our words to deeds, we pray.
6 Lord, we journey hand in hand,
pilgrims to our fatherland:
guide us with your countenance bright
till we fully stand in light.
