The Captain Of The Host Of The Lord

"And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come"  Joshua 5:14

The hosts of Israel stand before the gateway to a promised land.  No swords are drawn, no skill have they, but with them is an unseen host, and with the host, "The Captain Of Jehovah's Host."  Jericho and all the giants of the land submit, and for thee, "behind the dim unknown standeth God with the shadows, keeping watch above His own."

Captain of the Hosts of God,

In the path where Thou hast trod,

Bows my soul in humble awe-

Take command.  Thy word is law.


Cause me to possess the land, 

Led by Thine Almighty hand.

Be my guide, defense and power,

Lead me from this very hour.  Amen.


The Wonderful Names of Our Wonderful Lord
