Hymn/Song Information

Lord while for all mankind we pray Of every clime




Lord, while for all mankind we pray,
Of every clime and coast,
O hear us for our native land,
The land we love the most.


Our fathersí sepulchres are here,
And here our kindred dwell,
Our children too: how should we love
Another land so well?


O guard our shores from every foe;
With peace our borders bless;
With prosperous times our cities crown,
Our fields with plenteousness.


Unite us in the sacred love
Of knowledge, truth, and Thee;
And let our hills and valleys shout
The songs of liberty.


Here may religion, pure and mild,
Smile on our Sabbath hours
And piety and virtue bless
Our fathers' home and ours.


Lord of the nations, thus to Thee
Our country we commend;
Be Thou her Refuge and her Trust
Her everlasting Friend.


---Alternative verses---


O guard our shores from every foe;
With peace our borders bless;
Our cities with prosperity,
Our fields with plenteousness.


Here may religion shed her light,
On days of rest and toil;
And piety and virtue bless
And bless our native soil.
