Christian Worship For An Anniversary Meeting Of The Friends Of Peace.

Not with the flashing steel-
Not with the cannon’s peal,
Or stir of drum,
But in the bonds of love;
Our white flag floats above,
Her emblem is the dove,
‘Tis thus we come.

The laws of Christian light,
These are our weapons bright,
Our mighty shield;
Christ is our leader high,
And the broad plains which lie
Beneath the blesséd sky,
Our battle field.

On, then, in God’s great name,
Let each pure spirit’s flame
Burn bright and clear:
Stand firmly in your lot,
Cry ye aloud, Doubt not,
Be every fear forgot,
Christ leads us here.

So shall Earth’s distant lands
In happy, holy bands,
One brotherhood,
Together rise and sing,
And joyful offerings bring,
And Heaven’s Eternal King
Pronounce it good.
