Thou art the mighty King of kings,
The Lord of lords most high;
Israel is safe beneath Thy wings,
Thy servants shall not die.

Thro’ Thee we shall the victory gain,
Tho’ hosts of hell oppose;
Thou art our God, and Thou wilt reign,
In spite of all Thy foes.

We trust not in our bow or sword;
For weakness is our power:
In Thee we trust, almighty Lord,
Through every dangerous hour.

Thou hast already set us free,
And put our foes to shame;
Beneath Thy banner still we’ll be,
Our refuge is Thy name.

In Thee we boast, Thou God of love,
Thy holy name adore;
And as we rise to Heav’n above,
We’ll love and praise Thee more.
