St. Athanasius Edward J. Hopkins, 1872 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Lord, we come with hearts aflame,
Seeking service in Thy name;
All our youth and strength are Thine,
Giv’n to help Thy work divine;
All our love and faith we bring,
They are Thine, O heavenly King.

Lord of hosts, we ask Thine aid,
Keep us ever unafraid;
Hold us loyal, hold us true
To the task we have to do;
Lead us on to victory;
We shall triumph praising Thee.

Lord of all, we take our stand,
Giving help at Thy command;
Eager, joyful, blithe, and strong,
Thrilled with love and filled with song,
Lord, we come with hearts aflame,
Seeking service in Thy name.
