- God of our fathers, whose almighty hand
Leads forth in beauty all the starry band
Of shining worlds in splendor thro' the skies,
Our grateful songs before thy throne arise.
- Thy love divine hath led us in the past,
In this free land by thee our lot is cast ;
Be thou our ruler, guardian, guide and stay,
Thy word our law, thy paths our chosen way.
- From war's alarms, from deadly pestilence,
Be thy strong arm our ever sure defense;
Thy true religion in our hearts increase,
Thy bounteous goodness nourish us in peace.
- Refresh thy people on their toilsome way,
Lead us from night to never-ending day ;
Fill all our lives with love and grace divine,
And glory, laud and praise be ever thine.Amen.
