1 SOLDIERS of CHRIST, arise,
And put your armour on, Strong in the strength which God supplies
Through His eternal Son.
And in His mighty pow'r,
Is more than conqueror.
With all His strength endu'd, And take, to arm you for the fight,
The panoply of GOD; 4 That having all things done,
And all your conflicts past, You may o'ercome through CHRIST alone.
And stand entire at last.
From strength to strength go on,
Wrestle, and fight, and pray;
And win the well-fought day.
In all His soldiers, « Come,”

Christian pilgrimage. 1 GUIDE us, o Thou great JEHOVAH!

Hymn. Christian pilgrimage in the Wilderness. 1 SAVIOUR, through the desert lead us :
Without Thee we cannot go:
Let Thy presence
Fearful lest we go astray,
Shall direct us ;
Manna shall our camp surround; Faint and thirsty, Thou wilt heed us, Streams shall from the rock abound.
Happy Israel ! What a SAVIOUR thou hast found ! 4 When our foes in arms assemble,
Ready to obstruct our way, Suddenly their hearts shall tremble, il Thou wilt strike them with dismay:
All Thy people,
Scatter ev'ry hostile band ;
Shouts of vict'ry .

Great was the love He bore to thee. 5 He who thus lov'd thee unto death,
Will love thee to thy latest breath":". ! Keep sight of Him, my soul, and run; '; He'll crown thee when thy race is done.
