Representative Text

1 The call of God resounding
thrills on the morning air:
'Arise and save my people
from sin's oppressive power!'
Fair breaks the day with gladness,
its light brings hope to all;
O God of heaven, we bless you
that we have heard your call.

2 The light of God is resting
upon the encircling hills,
pledge of the new day coming,
hope for our wearied wills;
long though the night, and fearful,
the day reveals your power;
O God of heaven, we thank you,
our strong and mghty tower.

3 Fierce though the conflict rages,
not yet the victory won;
God give us strength ane courage
until our task is done.
The foe moves out against us,
his hosts in grim array;
O God of heaven, we pray you:
Revive our cause today!

4 Rise up, O church to action!
Take up the cause of right;
the foe is strong, but stronger
are you in heaven's might:
with joy we hear the challenge
and answer to your call;
O God of heaven, your kingdom
shall triumph over all.
