O Son of God our Captain of salvation




O Son of God,
our Captain of salvation,
Thyself by suffering
schooled to human grief,
We bless Thee for
Thy sons of consolation,
Who follow in the steps
of Thee their Chief.


Those whom Thy Spirit’s dread
vocation severs
To lead the vanguard
of Thy conquering host;
Whose toilsome years are spent
in brave endeavors
To bear Thy saving Name
from coast to coast.


Those whose bright faith makes
feeble hearts grow stronger,
And sends fresh warriors
to the great campaign,
Bids the lone convert feel
estranged no longer,
And wins the sundered
to be one again.


And all true helpers, patient,
kind, and skilful,
Who shed Thy light across
our darkened earth,
Counsel the doubting,
and restrain the willful,
Soothe the sick bed,
and share the children’s mirth.


Such was Thy Levite,
strong in self oblation,
To cast his all at
Thine Apostles’ feet;
He whose new name,
through every Christian nation,
From age to age our
thankful strains repeat.


Thus, Lord, Thy blessèd saints
in memory keeping,
Still be Thy Church’s watchword,
“Comfort ye,”
Till in our Father’s house
shall end all weeping,
And every want be
satisfied in Thee.
