Representative Text

1 Laymen now have thus assembled,
In Thy blessed name, O God.
Guide us in our true endeavor,
Light the pathway that we trod;
Give us strength to ever labor for Thy cause,
Give us strength to ever labor for Thy cause.

2 We are banded one in union,
to fulfill Thy just command.
May we be Thy true disciples,
holding to Thy mighty hand;
Give us blessings from the fountain of Thy love,
Give us blessings from the fountain of Thy love.

3 As we walk this Christian journey,
let us keep our armor bright.
Let our words be pure and holy,
that we stand within Thy sight.
Laymen Soldiers, strong in unity and love,
Laymen Soldiers, strong in unity and love.

4 May we stand before Thine Altar,
pledging, Lord, to work for Thee.
In the Vineyard, in the pastures,
Let us, Lord, Thy Pilgrims be:
Let us lift the Cross forever to the skies,
Let us lift the Cross forever to the skies.

Amen.
