1665 - 1915.
LORD of Hosts, be Thou our strength
In this our hour of need;
Before Thy Throne we humbly pray
For grace to intercede.

Forgive, O LORD, our nations sins,
In thought, and word, and deed;
Forgive our sad internal strife,
Our selfishness and greed.

Help us, with strong enduring faith,
Thy guiding hand to see;
Give us the heart to do our part,
However hard it be.

May Eyam remember how of old
Stood forth her noble band,
Who chose to stay in danger's day,
And died to save the land.

And now there comes a wider call,
The banners are unfurled;
"Stand up in might to help the right,
Go forth and save the world."

We plead, O LORD, for grace and strength
For those who hear Thy call;
In war and strife, in death and life,
Thou rulest over all.

So may we fight against the foe
Till war and tumult cease;
Give us through strife more perfect life,
The world more perfect peace.

August, 1915.S. L. O'F.[99]

Additional Notes:
[1] An asterisk (*) beside a name marks those who came from Nether Padley - Ed.

[2] Farrier Tom HUDSON was later the village Blacksmith in Grindleford. (Information thanks to Alan Jacques)

[99] It may be that the author, ‘S. L. O'F’ was ‘S. L. O'FERRALL’, and related to Lieut. C. L. O'FERRALL, whose portrait is included in the booklet. At the time, all readers would have known who he or she was, and indeed a Cyril Lucien O'Ferrall is noted as Rector of Eyam in 1930 - see Rectors of Eyam - a Chapter in “The Plague Stricken Derbyshire Village or What To See In and Around Eyam”, by Rev J.M.J. Fletcher.
