The Priesthood of Our Lord (Men)


The Priesthood of Our Lord



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. 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. Let us venture forth in freedom

With the priesthood as our guide—

Deacons, teachers, priests, and elders,

Seeking virtue side by side.

May be sung without accompaniment as a round in unison by beginning every two measures.
