Lead on, O King Eternal

D G D Lead on, O King Eternal, G A The day of march has come; D G D Henceforth in fields of battle A E7 A7 Thy tents shall be our home. D G Through days of preparation E7 A Thy grace has made us strong; D G And now, O King Eternal. D A7 D 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; With deeds of love and mercy, The heav'nly 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.
