Joshua 5:13-15 (Listen)

The Commander of the Lord‘s Army

13 When Joshua was by Jericho, he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing before him with his drawn sword in his hand. And Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us, or for our adversaries?” 14 And he said, “No; but I am the commander of the army of the Lord. Now I have come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped and said to him, “What does my lord say to his servant?” 15 And the commander of the Lord‘s army said to Joshua, “Take off your sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so. (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 54 : Guide me, O Thou Great Jehovah Hymnary.org link

1. Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah, 
Pilgrim through this barren land. 
I am weak but Thou art mighty; 
Hold me with Thy powerful hand. 
Bread of heaven, 
Feed me till I want no more. 

2. Open now the crystal fountain 
Whence the healing stream doth flow; 
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar 
Lead me all my journey through. 
Strong Deliverer 
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield. 

3. When I tread the verge of Jordan, 
Bid my anxious fears subside; 
Death of death and hell’s Destruction, 
Land me safe on Canaan’s side. 
Songs of praises 
I will ever give to Thee.
