Judeo-Christian Culture: O Thou Rock of Our Salvation

Judeo-Christian Culture—

O Thou Rock of Our Salvation

Joseph L. Townsend

 

jesus-rock2O thou Rock of our salvation, Jesus Savior of the world,

In our poor and lowly station we thy banner have unfurled.

 

We a war against sin are waging; we’re contending for the right.

Every day the battle’s raging; help us, Lord, to win the fight.

 

truth3freeOnward, onward, we’ll be singing as we’re marching firm and true,

Each succeeding battle ringing earnest of what we can do.

 

Gather round the standard bearer; gather round in strength of youth.

Every day the prospect’s fairer while we’re battling for the truth.

 

When for all that we’ve contended, when the fight of faith we’ve won,

jesus-rock1When the strife and battle’s ended, and our labor here is done,

 

Then, O Rock of our salvation, Jesus, Savior of the world,

Take us from our lowly station; let our flag with thee be furled.
