Representative Text

1 Once more, O Lord, we pray,
Put Thy strong armor on;
Strike down the shield of Satan’s pow’r;
Let victory be won.

Once more, O Lord, once more
Thy blessing we implore;
In Thy great name let vict’ry sweep
Thro’ Zion’s gates once more.

2 Lord Jesus, come today;
Let souls before Thee bow;
Be this Thine hour of triumph, Lord;
Oh, send salvation now. [Refrain]

3 Lord Jesus, come and reign;
Let error’s empire fall;
We long to see Thy glory shine,
And crown Thee Lord of all. [Refrain]
