King of glory! Savior dear

Full Text

1 King of glory! Savior dear!
Grant us grace to persevere;
Leader of the hosts of God,
May we tread where Thou hast trod!

2 Once for Thee, the Crucified,
Many a faithful martyr died;
How can we, Thy children, show
All our love, for all Thy woe?

3 They for Thee faced ax and wheel,
Fire, and beasts, and piercing steel;
Like them, may we suffer shame,
Pain or loss for Thy dear Name;

4 Bearing calmly for our Lord
Thoughtless jest or bitter word;
Curbing angry speech and tear,
Strong in Thee to persevere.

5 Persevere! Thy yoke is light,
Persevere! Thy crown is bright,
Persevere, and we shall sing
In the palace of our King!
