Lyrics : Verses. 1,2 - J.P. O'Daly, Verse. 3 John O'Brien, 1878-1953
Tune: NOI VOGLIAM DIO Irregular
We stand for God! and for his glory;
The Lord supreme and God of all;
Against his foes we raise his standard;
Around the Cross we hear his call.
Strengthen our faith, Redeemer;
Guard us when danger is nigh;
To thee we pledge our lives and service;
For God we live, for God we'll die,
To thee we pledge our lives and service,
For God we live, for God we'll die.
We stand for God! Jesus our Master
Has died to save with love untold;
His law divine and truth unchanging
In this our land their place must hold.
Patriotic words sung to a thumping marching beat, soaring strings and a rallying bulge call. Great for humming as we walked out of church on a Sunday morning with that light spring in our stride. Have a great day!
Somehow for the hymnal I am using, we don't "die for God" but we are "strong in a trust that ne'er can die"
