Lead On O King Eternal

1. Lead on, O King eternal,
The day of march has come;
Henceforth in fields of conquest,
Thy tents shall be our home.
Through days of preparation,
Thy grace has made us strong;
And now, O King eternal, We lift our battle song.

2. Lead on, O King eternal,
Till sin¹s fierce war shall cease,
And holiness shall whisper,
The sweet amen of peace.
For not with swords¹ loud clashing,
Nor roll of stirring drums;
With deeds of love and mercy,
The heavenly kingdom comes.

Lead on, O King; Lead on, O King; Lead on, O King, Lead on

3. Lead on, O King eternal,
We follow, not with fears,
For gladness breaks like morning,
Where¹er Thy face appears.
Thy cross is lifted over us,
We journey in its light;
The crown awaits the conquest;
Lead on, O God of might.
