31243, Hymns, The Priesthood of Our Lord, no. 320
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.
