    Sovereign of heaven and earth, behold
    The nation at thy feet;
    There rich and poor, and young and old,
    In lowly posture meet.


    Thither would we with grateful frame,
    Our thankful tribute bring,
    And celebrate the glorious name
    Of our exalted King.


    He breaks the bow and cruel sword,
    And makes the wars to cease;
    Come, let us magnify the Lord,
    Who gives the nation peace.


    The warlike trump no more we hear,
    Inviting to the field;
    No more do hostile armies wear
    The helmet and the shield.


    The thundering cannon cease to roar,
    Nor spread destruction round;
    The murderous engines now no more
    Tear up the fertile ground.


    Commerce erects her fainting head,
    And trade revives again;
    Our numerous fleets the seas o’erspread,
    And fearless plow the main.


    Before the Majesty of heaven,
    Our mercies past we own;
    The work of peace alone was thine,
    Let praise surround the throne.
