Hymn/Song Information

Gird on great God thy sword Ascend Thy




Gird on, great God, thy sword,
Ascend thy conquering car,
While justice, truth and love,
Maintain the holy war;
Victorious thou, thy foes shalt tread,
And sin and hell in triumph lead.


Make bare thy potent arm,
And wing th' unerring dart,
With salutary pangs.
To each rebellious heart:
Then dying souls for life shall sue,
Num'rous as drops of morning dew.


Then shall the spacious earth
Beneath thy sceptre bend;
And peace her olive-branch,
And balmy wings extend:
The dews of heav'n enrich the ground.
And Paradise shall bloom around.
