God of Our Fathers, Known of Old
, 80


1. God of our fathers, known of old,Lord of our far-flung battle line,Beneath whose awful hand we holdDominion over palm and pine:Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,Lest we forget, lest we forget.
2. The tumult and the shouting dies;The captains and the kings depart.Still stands thine ancient sacrifice,An humble and a contrite heart.Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,Lest we forget, lest we forget.
3. Far-called, our navies melt away;On dune and headland sinks the fire.Lo, all our pomp of yesterdayIs one with Nineveh and Tyre!Judge of the nations, spare us yet,Lest we forget, lest we forget.
