Jesus, sun and shield art thou

if you do not hear the tune, click here.

Jesus, sun and shield art thou, sun and shield forever!  
Never canst thou cease to shine, cease to guard us never.  
Cheer our steps as on we go;
come between us and the foe.

Jesus, peace and joy art thou, joy and peace forever!  
Joy that fades not, changes not, peace that leaves us never.  
Joy and peace we have in thee,
now and through eternity.

Jesus, song and strength art thou, strength and song forever!  
Strength that never can decay, song that ceaseth never.  
Still to us this strength and song
through eternal days prolong.

Jesus, bread and wine art thou, bread and wine forever!  
Never canst thou cease to feed or refresh us, never.  
Feed us still on bread divine,
drink we still of heavenly wine.
