1. 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.

2. 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; With deeds of love and mercy The heav’nly kingdom comes.

3. 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.
