1.
Let God arise to lead forth those
Who march to war!
Let God arise, and all His foes
Be scattered far!

2.
So Israel prayed, and Thou, O Lord,
Wast with him then:
Be with us now, who draw the sword
For war again.

3.
Grant Thou our soldiers courage high
When foes are near,
To strive, to suffer, or to die
Untouched by fear.

4.
Grant strength to those who mourn today
Their loved ones lost,
Yea, those who give their best, nor stay
To count the cost.

5.
Fight Thou for us, that we may fill
Thy courts with praise;
Then teach us mercy, teach us still
The fallen to raise.

6.
Yet more and more, as ages run,
Bid warfare cease,
And give to all beneath the sun
Love, freedom, peace.
