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 glorious song!
Lead on, O King Eternal, till sin’s fierce war shall cease,
And holiness shall whisper the sweet amen of peace.
Thy Word, it goes before us, we journey in its light;
Our hearts redeemed from evil, that we may see aright.
Lead on, O King Eternal, we follow, not with fears,
For gladness breaks like morning where’er Thy face appears.
O God protect and lead us, through all the storms of life,
Until we reach heav’ns glories and Thy unending light.
Lead on O, King Eternal, Thy Word shall be our guide,
In days of tribulation in Thee your people hide,
In grateful exultation our voices now we blend;
For Christ the Lord, He reigneth, our joy that hath no end!
