1.  Lord, we come with hearts aflame,

Seeking service in Thy Name;

All our youth and strength are Thine,

Given to help Thy work divine;

All our love and faith we bring,

They are Thine, O heavenly King.

2.  Lord of hosts, we ask Thine aid,

Keep us ever unafraid;

Hold us loyal, hold us true

To the task we have to do;

Lead us on to victory,

We shall triumph praising Thee.

3.  Lord of all, we take our stand,

Giving help at Thy command;

Eager, joyful, blithe, and strong,

Thrilled with love and filled with song;

Lord, we come with hearts aflame,

Seeking service in Thy Name.
