Hymn/Song Information

Not with the flashing steel Not with the




Not with the flashing steel,
Not with the cannonís peal,
Or stir of drum;
But in the bonds of love,
Our white flag, floats above;
Her emblem is the dove;ó
ĎTis thus we come.


The laws of Christian light,ó
These are our weapons bright,
Our mighty shield;
Christ is our leader high;
And the broad plains which lie
Beneath th blessed sky,
Our battle-field.


What is that great intent
On which each heart is bent,
Our hosts among?
It is that hate may die,
That warís red curse may fly,
And warís high praise for aye
No more be sung.


On, then, in Godís great name!
Let earth pure spiritís flame
Burn bright and clear;
Stand firmly in your lot,
Cry ye aloud, doubt not,
Be every fear forgot;
Christ leads us here!


So shall earthís distant lands,
In happy holy hands,
One brotherhood,
Together rise and sing,
Gifts to one altar bring,
And heavenís Eternal King
Pronounce it good.
