Litany for our Soldiers. By the Rev Dr Downes, Editor of "Great Thoughts." May be sung to the tune Melita (" Eternal Father, Strong to Save." God of our fathers, at whose call We now before Thy footstool fall Whose grace has made our Empire strong, Through love of right and hate of wrong We pray Thee in Thy pity shield, Our soldiers on the battlefield. If there be eloquence in grief, Or if in Deity relief If heaven regards the valorous deed, Or sighs to see the patriot bleed We pray Thee in Thy pity shield, Our soldiers on the battlefield. Asleep beneath Thine ample dome, With many a tender dream of home Or charging in the dust and glare, With bullets hurtling through the air We pray Thee in Thy pity shield, Our soldiers on the battlefield. ii wounded in the dreadful fray, Be Thou their comfort and their stay If dying, may they in their pain, Behold the Lamb for sinners slain And thus in Thy great pity shield, Our soldiers on the battlefield. And s ion, 0 blessed Prince of Peace, Bring in the days when war shall cease, And men as brothers shall unite To lill the world with love and light Meanwhile, in tender pity shield, Our soldiers on the battlefield. Copies of this Hymn may be obtained, IS. per lOO or {i per rooo, from the Publisher, A. W. HALL, Great Thoughts Office, Huttoll Street, Whitefriars, lAnnion, E.C.
