1 Captains of the saintly band,
Lights who lighten every land,
Princes who with Jesus dwell,
Judges of his Israel:
2 On the nations sunk in night
Ye have shed the Gospel light;
Sin and error flee away;
Truth reveals the promised day.
3 Not by warrior’s spear and sword,
Not by art of human word,
Preaching but the Cross of shame,
Rebel hearts for Christ ye tame.
4 Earth, that long in sin and pain
Groaned in Satan’s deadly chain,
Now to serve its God is free
In the law of liberty.
5 Distant lands with one acclaim
Tell the honor of your name,
Who, wherever man has trod,
Teach the mysteries of God.
6 Glory to the Three in One
While eternal ages run,
Who from deepest shades of night
Called us to his glorious light.
