Hymn/Song Information

Thou Lord of hosts Whose guiding hand




Thou Lord of hosts,
Whose guiding hand
Has brought us here before Thy face,
Our spirits wait for Thy command,
Our silent hearts implore Thy peace.


Those spirits lay
their noblest powers
As offerings on Thy holy shrine.
Thine was the strength
that nourished ours;
The soldiers of the cross are Thine.


While watching on our arms at night
We saw Thine angels around us move.
We heard Thy call, we felt Thy light,
And followed, trusting, to Thy love.


And now, with hymn and prayer we stand,
To give our strength to Thee, great God!
We would redeem Thy holy land,
That land which sin so long has trod.


Send us wherever Thou wilt, O Lord!
Through rugged toil and wearying fight.
Thy conquering love
shall be our sword,
And faith in Thee our truest might.


Send down Thy
constant aid, we pray.
Be Thy pure angels with us still.
Thy truth, be that our firmest stay;
Our only rest, to do Thy will.
