With peace our borders bless; With prosperous times our cities

crown,

Our fields with plenteousness. 3 Unite us in the sacred love

Of knowledge, truth, and Thee, And let our hills and valleys shout The songs of liberty.

4 Here may religion, pure and mild,

Smile on our Sabbath hours,
And piety and virtue bless

The home of us and ours.
5 Lord of the nations, thus to Thee

Our country we commend;
Be Thou her refuge and her trust,
Her everlasting friend.

mt 2 I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps;

They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I have read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;

His day is marching on.

ff Glory, etc.

3 I have read a fiery gospel, writ in burnished rows of steel;

As ye deal with My contemners, so with you My grace shall deal;' Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with His heel,

Since God is marching on.

ff Glory, etc.

4 He has sounded forth His trumpet that shall never call retreat;

He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat;
O be swift, my soul, to answer Him; be jubilant, my feet !

Our God is marching on.

ff Glory, etc.

5 In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born, across the sea,

With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me;
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free!

While God is marching on.
ff Glory, etc.

Alternative tune, Faber, No. 208.

mp 2 The tumult and the shouting dies;

The captains and the kings depart;
Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,

An humble and a contrite heart:
p Lord God of hosts, be with us yet,

Lest we forget, lest we forget.
mp 3 Far called our Davies melt away,

On dune and headland sinks the fire;
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday

Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
p Judge of the nations, spare us yet,

Lest we forget, lest we forget.
mp 4 If, drunk with sight of power, we loose

Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe,
Such boasting as the Gentiles use,

Or lesser breeds without the law:
р Lord God of hosts, be with us yet,

Lest we forget, lest we forget.
mp 5 For heathen heart that puts her trust

In reeking tube and iron shard;
All valiant dust that builds on dust,

And, guarding, calls not Thee to guard:
p For frantic boast and foolish word,
Thy mercy on Thy people, Lord.
