1 Saviour and Lord, we pray to thee,
Thy people ever would we be;
To thee whose love our lives has sealed,
To thee our lives we gladly yield.
2 A people called by thee to fight,
We stand united in thy sight,
One in our aim to vanquish sin,
And bring thy glorious Kingdom in.
3 In this glad moment while we sing,
Thy Army, we salute our King;
By thee we live, on thee rely,
By thee we’ll conquer or we’ll die.
4 Our strength for warfare is thy might,
Our hope of guidance is thy light;
Pour out thy Spirit while we wait,
And let thy love thy will dictate.
5 Beneath thy standard still we’ll stay;
Thy cause shall every purpose sway;
Nor will we lay our armour down
Till we exchange it for a crown.
