OUR STRONG CAPTAIN
(I Kings 20:27)
Like two little flocks of kids,
We are scattered on the hill;
Of what avail our puny might?
Of what avail our skill?
But with us is the Lord of Hosts:
He is the Lamb that was slain;
What matter though the Syrians fill
The valley and the plain!
Thou art here--Emmanuel;
Therefore shall the evil fall.
Rage the powers of death and hell?
Laugh the hosts satanical?
But the Lord shall laugh at them;
Short their day and fleeting fast.
And the Child of Bethlehem
Shall be King at last, at last.
