Lead On O King Eternal – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

Lead On O King Eternal as recorded on one of Enfield’s hymn albums.

The lyrics:
Lead on, O King eternal!
The day of march has come.
Henceforth in fields of conquest
Thy tents shall be our home.

Through days of preparation,
Thy grace has made us strong,
and now O King eternal
we lift our battle song.
So lead on,
lead on King of heaven,
my light and my salvation.
Your faithfulness endures.
Oh lead on,
lead us to Your kingdom
through joy or tribulation.
We follow You.
We follow You alone.
Lead on O King eternal
till sin, spears, war shall cease,
and holiness shall whisper
the sweet amen of peace.
For not with swords loud clashing,
nor roll of stirring drums;
with deeds of love and mercy,
the heavenly kingdom comes.
So lead on, lead on King of heaven.
My light and my salvation.
Your faithfulness endures.
Oh lead on,
lead us to Your kingdom
through joy or tribulation.
We follow You.
We follow You alone.

Lead on O King eternal!
We follow not with fears
for gladness breaks the morning
wher’er Thy face appears.
Thy cross lifted o’er us.
We journey in its light.
The crown awaits the conquest.
Lead on O God of might!
So lead on, lead on King of heaven.
My light and my salvation.
Your faithfulness endures.
Oh lead on,
lead us to Your kingdom
through joy or tribulation!
We follow You.
We follow You alone.
