If you know when this hymn was writ­ten, or where to get a good pic­ture of Zeu­ner (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


O Christ, for­get not them who stand
Thy van­guard in the dist­ant land,
In flood, in flame, in dark, in dread,
Sustain, we pray, each lift­ed head.

Thine is the work they strive to do,
Their foes so ma­ny, they so few,
Be with Thine own, Thy loved, who stand,
Christ’s van­guard, in the storm swept land.
