1. Our fathers’ God, to Thee we raise,
In cheerful song, our grateful praise;
From shore to shore the anthems rise;
Accept a nation’s sacrifice.

2. Incline our hearts with godly fear
To seek Thy face, Thy Word revere;
Cause Thou all wrongs, all strife to cease,
And lead us in the paths of peace.

3. Here may the weak a welcome find,
And wealth increase with lowly mind;
A refuge, still for all oppressed,
O be our land forever blest!

4. Thy wisdom, Lord, Thy guidance lend,
Where’er our widening bounds extend;
Inspire our wills to speed Thy plan:
The kingdom of the Son of Man!

5. Through all the past Thy truth we trace,
Thy ceaseless care, Thy signal grace;
O may our children’s children prove
Thy sovereign, everlasting love.
