Verse 1

For the might of thine arm we bless thee,
our God, our father's God;
Thou hast kept thy pilgrim people by the
strength of thy staff and rod;
Thou hast called us to the journey which
faithless feet ne'er trod;

Chorus

For the might of thine arm we bless
thee, our God, our father's God.

Verse 2

For the love of Christ constraining, that
bound their hearts as one;
For the faith in truth and freedom in which
their work was done:
For the peace of God's evangel wherewith
their feet were shod;

Verse 3

We are watchers of a beacon whose light
must never die;
We are guardians of an altar that shows
thee ever nigh;
We are children of thy freemen who sleep
beneath the sod;

Verse 4

May the shadow of thy presence around
our camp be spread;
Baptize us with the courage thou gavest to our dead;
O keep us in the pathway their saintly feet
have trod;
