Published in 11 hymnals
1 Christ, Thou the Champion of the band who own
Thy cross, O make Thy succor quickly known!
The schemes of those who long our blood have sought
Bring Thou to naught.
2 Do Thou Thyself for us Thy children fight,
Withstand the Devil, quell his rage and might,
Whate'er assails Thy members left below
Do Thou o'erthrow.
3 And give us peace; peace in the Church and school,
Peace to the powers who o'er our country rule,
Peace to the conscience, peace within the heart
Do Thou impart.
4 So shall Thy goodness here be still adored,
Thou Guardian of Thy little flock, dear Lord,
And heaven and earth through all eternity
Shall worship Thee.
