We Rest on Thee

We rest on Thee, our Shield and our Defender;
We go not forth alone against the foe;
Strong in Thy strength, safe in Thy keeping
tender,
We rest on Thee, and in Thy name we go.
Yea, in Thy name, O Captain of salvation!
In Thy dear name, all other names above;
Jesus our Righteousness, our sure Foundation,
Our Prince of glory, with His heart of love.
We go in faith, our own great weakness
feeling,
And needing more each day Thy grace to
know:
Yet from our hearts a song of triumph pealing;
We rest on Thee, and in Thy name we go.
We rest on Thee, our Shield and our Defender:
Thine is the battle; Thine shall be the praise
When reigning with Thee in that glorious
splendor;
Victors, we rest with Thee, through endless
days.
