The Otterbein Hymnal by Edmund S. Lorenz

408 Essex. 8s & 7s.

The Responsibilities of the Age.

We are living, we are dwelling,
In a grand and awful time,
In an age on ages telling;
To be living is sublime.

2 Hark the onset! will ye fold your
Faith-clad arms in lazy lock?
Up! O up! thou drowsy soldier;
Worlds are charging to the shock.

3 Worlds are charging, heav'n beholding;
Thou hast but an hour to fight;
Now, the blazoned cross unfolding,
On! right onward for the right.

4 On! let all the soul within you
For the truth's sake go abroad;
Strike! let ev'ry nerve and sinew
Tell on ages -- tell for God.

Bp. Arthur Cleveland Coxe, 1840.
