Hymn/Song Information

God send us men whose aim 'twill be




God send us men whose aim ’twill be,
Not to defend some ancient creed,
But to live out the laws of Christ
In every thought and word and deed.


God send us men alert and quick
His lofty precepts to translate,
Until the laws of Christ become
The laws and habits of the state.


God send us men of steadfast will,
Patient, courageous, strong and true,
With vision clear and mind equipped
His will to learn, his work to do.


God send us men with hearts ablaze,
All truth to love, all wrong to hate;
These are the patriots nations need;
These are the bulwarks of the state.
