Forget them not, O Christ

Forget them not, O Christ

Author: Margaret E. M. Sangster
Tune: ELSENHAM
Published in 9 hymnals

Full Text

1 Forget them not, O Christ, who stand
Thy vanguard in the distant land.

2 In flood, in flame, in dark, in dread,
Sustain, we pray, each lifted head.

3 Exalt them over every fear,
In peril come Thyself more near.

4 Thine is the work they strive to do,
Their foes so many, they so few.

5 Be with Thine own, Thy loved, who stand,
Christ's vanguard in the storm-swept land.

Amen.
