Hymn, "Soldiers of Christ, Arise"

Put on the whole armour of God

Soldiers of Christ, arise,
And put your armour on;

Strong in the strength which God supplies,
Through His Eternal Son;

Strong in the Lord of Hosts,
And in His mighty power;

Who in the strength of Jesus trusts
Is more than conqueror.

Stand then in His great might,
With all His strength endued;

And take to arm you for the fight,
The panoply of God.

From strength to strength go on,
Wrestle, and fight, and pray;

Tread all the powers of darkness down,
And win the well-fought day.

That having all things done,
And all your conflicts past,

Ye may obtain, through Christ alone,
A crown of joy at last. Amen.

General Confession

(To be said by all, standing)

Almighty and most merciful Father; We have erred and strayed from Thy ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against Thy Holy Laws. We have left undone the things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us. But Thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders. Spare Thou them, O God, which confess their faults. Restore Thou them that are penitent; according to Thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Father, for His sake, that we may hereafter live a godly, righteous and sober life, To the glory of Thy Holy Name. Amen.

Prayer for Pardon

O Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who desireth not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness, and live, pardon and accept, we beseech Thee, all those who truly repent and unfeignedly believe Thy Holy Gospel. Grant us true repentance and Thy Holy Spirit; that those things may please Thee which we do at this present; and that the rest of our life here­after may be pure and holy; so that at the last we may come to Thy eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Lord's Prayer

Prayer for the King's Majesty

(All standing)

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, high and mighty, King of kings, Lord of lords, the only Ruler of princes, who dost from Thy throne behold all the dwellers upon earth; most heartily we beseech Thee with Thy favor to behold our most gracious Sov­ereign Lord, King George; and so replenish him with the grace of Thy Holy Spirit, that he may alway incline to Thy will, and walk in Thy way; Endue him plenteously with heavenly gifts; grant him in health and wealth long to live; strengthen him that he may vanquish and overcome all his enemies; and finally, after this life, he may attain everlasting joy and felicity; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for the Royal Family

Almighty God, the fountain of all goodness, we humbly beseech Thee to bless our gracious Queen Mary, Alexandra the Queen Mother, Edward Prince of Wales and all the Royal Family; Endue them with Thy Holy Spirit; enrich them with Thy heav­enly grace; prosper them with all happiness; and bring them to Thine everlasting kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for Soldiers

Grant, we beseech Thee, Almighty God, that we who are called to the service of our Empire, may ever remember the honour which we uphold and the privilege which is entrusted to us, to defend our Sovereign, our homes and our country. Enable us at all times to do what is right, and so to conduct our­selves, that we may bring no disgrace upon the uniform which we wear, nor upon the flag under which we serve. Make us faithful, brave and true to our duty, and especially to Thee, our God, as soldiers of Christ and soldiers of the King. Keep us, defend us and save us at all times; fill our hearts with courage and love, and may we never be ashamed to confess Thee before men, as good sol­diers and servants of Thine. And this we ask for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Scripture Lesson



"In the Chapel"   -   -   -   -   -   -R. Eilenberg
Band of the Queen's Own Rifles


By Captain the Rev. Dr. Llwyd, Chaplain to the Queen's Own Rifles.

Hymn, "Stand up for Jesus"

Quit you like men, be strong

Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
Ye soldiers of the Cross;

Lift high His Royal Banner,
It must not suffer loss;

From victory unto victory
His army He shall lead;

Till every foe is vanquished,
And Christ is Lord indeed.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
The trumpet call obey;

Forth to the mighty conflict
In this His glorious day;

Ye that are men now serve Him
Against unnumbered foes;

Let courage rise with danger,
And strength to strength oppose.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus;
Stand in His Strength alone;

The arm of flesh will fail you,
Ye dare not trust your own;

Put on the gospel armour,
And watching unto prayer,

Where duty calls, or danger,
Be never wanting there.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus;
The strife will not be long;

This day the noise of battle,
The next the victors' song;

To him that overcometh
A crown of life shall be;

He with the King of glory
Shall reign eternally. Amen.

National Anthem

God save our Gracious King, Long live our noble King, God save the King. Send him victorious, Happy and glorious, Long to reign over us; God save the King.
Thy choicest gifts in store, On him be pleased to pour; Long may he reign. May he defend our laws, And ever give us cause To sing with heart and voice, God save the King.
