Captain of Israel’s host and guide

VERSE 1
Captain of Israel’s host,
and guide
Of all who seek the land
above,
Beneath Thy shadow we
abide
The cloud of Thy protecting
love
Our strength, thy grace
Our rule, Thy word
Our end, the glory of the Lord

VERSE 2
By thine unerring spirit led,
We shall not in the desert
stray;
We shall not full direction need,
Nor miss our providential
way
As far from danger, as from fear
While love, Almighty love is
near.

VERSE 3
We’ve no abiding city here
But seek a city out of sight
Thither our steady course we
steer
Aspiring to the plains of light
Jerusalem the saints’ abode
Whose founder is the Living
God
