2 O, Christian brothers, glorious Shall be the conflict's close: The cross hath been victorious,
And shall be o'er its foes. Faith is our battle-token: Our Leader all controls; a Our trophies, fetters broken; Our captives, ransomed souls.
3 Not unto us: Lord Jesus,
To Thee all praise be due! Whose blood-bought mercy frees us,
Has freed our brethren too. Not unto us: in glory
The angels catch the strain, And cast their crowns before Thee
Exultingly again.
Bishop E. II. Bickersteth, 1848
I2 He who in fealty to the truth, And counting all the cost,
I Doth consecrate his generous youth, He joins the noble host.
$ He who no anger on his tongue,
Nor any idle boast, I Bears steadfast witness against wrong,-He joins the sacred host.
4  He who with calm, undaunted will
Ne'er counts the battle lost But, though defeated, battles still, He joins the faithful host.
5  He who is ready for the Cross,
The cause despised loves most, And shuns not pain or shame or loss, He joins the martyr host.
Rev. Samuel Longfellow, 1864
