Hymn in honour of St George

Leader now on earth no longer

Leader now on earth no longer, Soldier of th’ eternal King,

Victor in the fight for Heaven, We thy loving praises sing.

Great St George, our patron, help us, In the conflict be thou nigh;
Help us in that daily battle, Where each one must win or die.

Praise him who in deadly battle Never shrank from foeman’s sword,

Proof against all earthly weapon, Gave his life for Christ our Lord.

Great St George, etc

Who, when earthly war was over, Fought, but not for earth’s renown;

Fought, and won a nobler glory – Won the martyr’s purple crown.

Great St George, etc

Help us when temptation presses; We have still our crown to win;

Help us when our soul is weary, Fighting with the powers of sin.

Great St George, etc

Clothe us in thy shining armour, Place thy good sword in our hand;

Teach us how to wield it, fighting Onward t’wards the heavenly land.

Great St George, etc
