Lord, while for all mankind we pray,
Of ev’ry clime and coast;
O hear us for our native land,
The land we love the most.
O guard our shores from ev’ry foe,
With peace our borders bless;
With prosp’rous times our cities crown
Our fields with plentiousness.
Unite us in the sacred love,
Of knowledge truth, and Thee;
And let our hills and valleys shout
The song of liberty.
Lord of the nations, thus to Thee,
Our country we commend;
Be Thou her refuge and her trust,
Her everlasting Friend.
