1 The grace of God be with you hence,
And heav'nly aid afford,
To be your shield and sure defence,
To serve your blessed Lord.
2 Like faithful soldiers act your part,
And never yield to sin,
But seek the Lord with all your heart,
The precious prize to win.
3 Remember well the covenant,
That which you now have made,
To bear the Cross, be ye content',
With Christ your living head.
4 O keep in view the great reward,
Look to the life to come,
Which you shall have when Christ your Lord
Shall come to take you home.
5 Lord grant us grace with confidence,
To bear our crosses here,
That when thou callest us from hence,
We may with joy appear.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CCVIII
