1 In the precious Bible
We have often read
How God’s holy prophet
By the birds were fed.
Father may we trust Thee,
As He did of old,
That with Him we may be
In Thy blessèd fold.

Heav’nly Father,
Hear us while we pray:
Lead our footsteps
In the narrow way.

2 When our blessèd Jesus
Made this earth His home,
He said, Suffer children
Unto Me to come.
Jesus, we are coming,
Coming one and all;
Ever pressing onward
At Thy blessèd call. [Refrain]

3 We are little soldiers
Marching day by day
Forward as for battle,
Ready for the fray.
We will never falter,
Till the foe shall fall,
Then with saints in glory
Crown Thee Lord of all. [Refrain]
