Heavenly Father, King Eternal

Heav'nly Father, King Eternal,
Leading on to victory,
Through the strife and din of battle,
Conquerors by Thy side are we.
Powers of Satan cannot harm us;
Evil cannot long endure.
Marching 'neath Thy mighty banner.
We do surely feel secure.

Through the valle, o'er the summit,
Darkest night and brightest day,
Waters deep and stormy places,
Still Thou leadest all the way.
Flash of lightning, crash of thunder,
Restless wave I shall not fear;
For the pathway straight before me
Is not long when Thou art near.

Father, hear our supplication
As we bow our hearts to Thee.
Fill us with Thy Holy Spirit;
For like Thee, Lord, we would be.
May Thy blood which flowed from Calv'ry
Sin and guile this day erase.
From our present lowly station,
Elevate us by Thy grace.

Sing! O sing, ye pure and spotless,
For this day art thou made whole.
Let the rocks and rills proclaim it:
Love hath cleansed yet one more soul.
Praise His name for full salvation;
Give Him praise forever more.
Gladly take the cross of Jesus;
Follow as He leads before.
