For the might of Thine arm we bless Thee




For the might of Thine arm we bless Thee
our God, our fathers’ God;
Thou hast kept Thy pilgrim people
by the strength of Thy staff and rod;
Thou hast called us to the journey
which faithless feet ne’er trod;
For the might of Thine arm we bless Thee,
Our God, our fathers’ God;


For the love of Christ constraining
that bound their hearts as one;
For the faith in truth and freedom
in which their work was done:
For the peace of God’s evangel
wherewith their feet were shod:
For the might of Thine arm we bless Thee,
Our God, our fathers’ God;


We are watchers of a beacon
whose light must never die;
We are guardians of an altar
that shows Thee ever nigh;
We are children of Thy freemen
who sleep beneath the sod;
For the might of Thine arm we bless Thee,
Our God, our fathers’ God;


May the shadow of Thy presence
around our camp be spread;
Baptize us with the courage
with which Thou blessed our dead;
O keep us in the pathway
their saintly feet have trod;
For the might of Thine arm we bless Thee,
Our God, our fathers’ God;
