534. Lead on, O King Eternal


Henry Smart, 1836

Ernest W. Shurtleff, 1888

Lead on, O King Eternal,

The day of march has come;

Henceforth in fields of conquest

Thy tents shall be our home:

Through days of preparation

Thy grace has made us strong,

And now, O King Eternal,

We lift our battle-song.

Lead on, O King Eternal,

Till sin's fierce war shall cease,

And holiness shall whisper

The sweet Amen of peace;

For not with swords loud clashing,

Nor roll of stirring drums,

But deeds of love and mercy,

The heavenly kingdom comes.

Lead on, O King Eternal:

We follow, not with fears;

For gladness breaks like morning

Where'er thy face appears;

Thy cross is lifted o'er us;

We journey in its light:

The crown awaits the conquest;

Lead on, O God of might.
