Representative Text

1 We come again, in bonds of love, an army strong
To win the world we firmly march along;
We meet, in Christ our Saviour one,
To tell of all the wonders He has done.

Marching ever onward, we are trusting, trusting in the Lord,
And with His banner waving o’er us,
Like the faithful gone before us,
We are singing now with one accord,
Hallelujah, blessed be the Lord!

2 We come again to rest awhile at Jesus’ feet,
And blend our hearts in friendship pure and sweet;
To sing His love in cheerful songs,
To whom alone our highest praise belongs. [Chorus]

3 We come again to ask anew the Spirit’s pow’r,
To keep our souls and guard us hour by hour;
For grace and faith to labor still,
And strength our own appointed place to fill. [Chorus]

4 And when at last our eyes behold the closing day,
When we shall bear our golden sheaves away;
What joy to meet our precious Friend,
And join the song that nevermore shall end. [Chorus]
