1
WE treasure, Lord, Thy blessèd Name,
Rejected here, yet still the Same;
We know that Thou art near.
The firm foundation still remains,
The Spirit all the truth sustains
Within th'assembly here.
2
Arise, O Lord, in strength divine
And let us see Thy glory shine,
As Thy blest Name we own.
While bowing now before Thy feet,
In lowliness we seek to meet
Each challenge to the throne.
3
Hail! Lord of Hosts, Thou Man of war!
So soon to reign from shore to shore,
We own Thy peerless worth.
Now from between the cherubim,
The rights of God to claim for Him,
O Shepherd Thou, shine forth!
4
But keep us ever close to Thee,
Subdued whate'er the times may be,
Though vict'ry be assured.
Then, with each time of conflict o'er,
To myriad hearts who Thee adore,
Return and rest, O Lord.
