Collect for the Royal Dragoon Guards
Our God, Our Defence was commissioned by All Saints Church, York in 2015 for the dedication of a New Stained glass Window installed in the Church. This is a setting of the regimental Collect for the Royal Dragoon Guards based in York.
O God, Our defence, Our Castle and our Shield. Whose blessed Son has taught us that no man, having put his hand to the plough and looking back is fit for thy kingdom:
Grant, we beseech thee, that we, thy servants of the Royal Dragoon Guards, may never be severed from thy grace; and united under thy standard may choose to follow him who hath the words of eternal life, thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
