Representative Text

1 We are called, a band of witnesses for God,
And the call we find is written in His Word,
For He bids us follow where He trod,
And He leads us ev’ry day.

Refrain:
Now thanks be unto God our Saviour
Who leads us in triumphant grace.
We will glory in our risen King,
While His Word its messages doth bring,
O, thanks be unto God our Saviour.

2 We will meet the foes of truth without a fear,
For the Lord Who leads us on is ever near,
And throughout the day His voice we hear,
So our hearts rejoice and sing. [Refrain]

3 He has girded us with armour that will stand,
And a mighty Weapon placed within our hand;
Now before us lies unconquered land,
And His mighty Word says, “Go!” [Refrain]
