All Hail, Adored Trinity


All hail, adored Trinity;1
All praise, eternal Unity:
O God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, ever one.

Three Persons praise we evermore,
One only God our hearts adore:
In your sure mercy ever kind,
May we our strong protection find.

O Trinity! O Unity!
Be present as we worship Thee;
And with the songs that angels sing
Unite the hymns of praise we bring.

Oft in Danger, Oft in Woe

 


Oft in danger, oft in woe,1
onward, Christians, onward go;
bear the toil, maintain the strife,
strengthened with the bread of life.

Onward, Christians, onward go,
join the war, and face the foe;
will ye flee in danger’s hour?
Know ye not your Captain’s power?

Let your drooping hearts be glad;
march in heavenly armour clad;
fight, nor think the battle long:
victory soon shall tune your song.

Let not sorrow dim your eye;
soon shall every tear be dry:
let not fears your course impede;
great your strength, if great your need.

Onward then in battle move;
more than conquerors ye shall prove:
though opposed by many a foe,
Christian soldiers, onward go.

Patton’s Prayer

Patton's Prayer

Almighty and most merciful Father, we humbly beseech Thee, of Thy great goodness, to restrain these immoderate rains with which we have had to contend. Grant us fair weather for Battle. Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call upon Thee that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies and establish Thy justice among men and nations.
