Hymn/Song Information

Jesus my King proclaims the war Awake




Jesus, my King, proclaims the war;
Awake, the pow'rs of hell are near!
"To arms, to arms!" I hear him cry,
'Tis yours to conquer or to die."


Rous'd by the animating sound,
I caat my eager eyes around;
Make haste to gird my armour on,
And bid each trembling fear be gone.


Hope is my helmet, faith my shield,
The word of God the sword I wield;
With sacred truth my loins are girt,
And holy zeal inspires my heart.


Thus arm'd, I venture on the fight,
Resolv'd to put my foes to flight;
While Jesus kindly deigns to spread
His conquering banner o'er my head.

And bid each trembling fear be gone.


Hope is my helmet, faith my shield,
The word of God the sword I wield;
With sacred truth my loins are girt,
And holy zeal inspires my heart.


In him I hope, in him I trust;
His bleeding cross is all my boast;
Thro' troops of foes he'll lead me on
To vict'ry and the victor's crown.

Thro' troops of foes he'll lead me on
To vict'ry and the victor's crown.
