  1. 1. Brethren, pow’r by earthly standards
    Comes by rank or wealth or sword;
    But the pow’r above all others
    Is the priesthood of our Lord.
  2. 2. It is ours, the total armor—
    Priesthood held by Christ, our Lord—
    If, as brethren, we are worthy
    Of the Spirit’s whispered word.
  3. 3. Let us venture forth in freedom
    With the priesthood as our guide—
    Deacons, teachers, priests, and elders,
    Seeking virtue side by side.
