I found this dear little book about a month ago at a yard sale for fifty cents. See below to learn it's age.
One of my favorites so far is
Army Hymn, "Old Hundred"
O Lord of Hosts! Almighty King!
Behold the sacrifice we bring!
To every arm Thy strength impart,
Thy Spirit shed through every heart!
Wake in our breasts the living fires,
The Holy faith that warmed our sires;
Thy hand hath made our Nation free;
To die for her is serving Thee.
Be thou a pillared flame to show
The midnight snare, the silent foe;
And when the battle thunders loud,
Still guide us in it's moving cloud.
God of all Nations! Sovereign Lord!
In Thy dread name we draw the sword,
We lift the starry flag on high
That fills with light our stormy sky.
From treason's rent from murder's stain
Guard Thou it's folds till Peace shall reign-
Till fort and field, till shore and sea,
Join our loud anthem, Praise To Thee.
At the bottom of the page it says, "See Exodus xiii. 21.
Here's what it says,
21 "And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night by a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night."
I may post more from this book. I hope you enjoy it.
God bless you and yours
