JESUS, SUN AND SHIELD ART THOU

1.JESUS, Sun and Shield art Thou,    

Sun and Shield for ever. 

Never canst Thou cease to shine,

Cease to guard us, never. 

Cheer our steps as on we go, 

Come between us and the foe. 


2.Jesus, Bread and Wine art Thou, 

Wine and Bread for ever. 

Never canst Thou cease to feed

Or refresh  us, never. 

Feed us still on bread divine, 

Drink we still of heavenly wine. 


3. Jesus, Love and Life art Thou, 

Life and Love for ever. 

Ne'er to quicken shalt Thou cease,

Or to love us, never. 

All of life and love we need 

Is in Thee, in Thee Indeed.


4.Jesus, Peace and Joy art Thou,

Joy and Peace for ever. 

Joy that fades not, changes not,

Peace that leaves us never. 

Joy and peace we have In Thee. 

Now and through eternity.


5.Jesus, Song and Strength art Thou,

Strength and Song for ever. 

Strength that never can decay,

Song that ceaseth never. 

Still to us this strength and song, 

Through eternal days prolong.
