1 When Thy soldiers take their swords, When they speak the


When they kneel before Thee here,

Copyright, 1895, by The Trustees of The Presbyterian Board of Publication and Sabbath-School Work

(See also SPANISH HYMN, No. 219)

These Thy children, Lord, de- fend; To their help Thy Spir - it send. A-MEN.

These Thy children, Lord, defend;
Teach their souls to Thee to bend.

John H. Gower, 1895

Feeling Thee, their Father, near;


3 When their hearts are lifted high
With success or victory,
When they feel the conqueror's pride; Ere the victory be won,
Lest they grow self-satisfied,

325 Lord, I am Thine, entirely Thine.
355 Jesus, I my cross have taken.
387 Take my life, and let it be.

2 When the world's sharp strife is nigh, 4 When the vows that they have made,

When they hear the battle-cry,
When they rush into the fight,
Knowing not temptation's might;

When the prayers that they have prayed,
Shall be fading from their hearts;
When their first warm faith departs;

These Thy children, Lord, defend;
To their zeal Thy wisdom lend.

These Thy children, Lord, defend;
Keep them faithful to the end.

For the sake of Christ, Thy Son,
These Thy children, Lord, defend;
And in death Thy comfort lend.
Mrs. Frances M. Owen, c. 1872

388 O Jesus, I have promised.
477 Just as I am, without one plea.
725 O happy day that fixed my choice.

2 Where the paschal blood is poured,
Death's dark angel sheathes his sword;
Israel's hosts triumphant go
Through the wave that drowns the foe.
Praise we Christ, whose blood is shed,
Paschal Victim, Paschal Bread;
With sincerity and love

Eat we manna from above.

3 Mighty Victim from the sky,
Powers of hell beneath Thee lie;
Death is conquered in the fight,
Thou hast brought us life and light:
Paschal triumph, paschal joy,
Only sin can this destroy;
From the death of sin set free
Souls re-born, dear Lord, in Thee.

Was not for you the Victim slain?
Are you forbid the children's bread?
4 O let Thy table honored be,
And furnished well with joyful guests;

2 Hail, sacred feast which Jesus makes,
Rich banquet of His flesh and blood!
Thrice happy he who here partakes
That sacred stream, that heavenly food!

3 Why are its dainties all in vain Before unwilling hearts displayed?

ly Thine, Purchased and saved by blood



2 Grant one poor sinner more a place
Among the children of Thy grace;
A wretched sinner lost to God,
But ransomed by Emmanuel's blood.
3 Thine would I live, Thine would I die,
Be Thine through all eternity:

The vow is past beyond repeal;
Now will I set the solemn seal.

4 Here, at that cross where flows the blood
That bought my guilty soul for God,
Thee my new Master now I call,
And consecrate to Thee my all.

Which from Thy sorrows flow.

But by that word of grace,
In strength of which we travel on
To our abiding-place.

Make all our moments calm and bright;

4 Our restless spirits yearn for Thee, Where'er our changeful lot is cast; Glad when Thy gracious smile we see, Blest when our faith can hold Thee fast.

50 Jesus, ever with us stay,

4 'Twas the same love that spread the feast

That sweetly forced us in;
Else we had still refused to taste,
And perished in our sin.

5 Pity the nations, O our God,
Constrain the earth to come;
Send Thy victorious word abroad,
And bring the strangers home.

6 We long to see Thy churches full,
That all the chosen race

May, with one voice and heart and soul,
Sing Thy redeeming grace.

Rev. Isaac Watts, 1707
