1 God of our fathers, whose almighty hand
leads forth in beauty all the starry band
of shining worlds in splendor through the skies,
our grateful songs before thy throne arise.
2 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.
3 From war's alarms, from deadly pestilence,
be thy strongt arm our ever sure defense;
thy true religion in our hearts increase
thy bounteous goodness nourish us in peace.
4 Refresh thy people on their toilsome way;
lead us from night to never-ending day;
fill all our lives with love and grace divine;
all glory, laud, and praise be ever thine.
