Hymn/Song Information

From foes that would the land devour From guilty




From foes that would the land devour,
From guilty pride and lust of power,
From wild sedition’s lawless hour,
From yoke of slavery,


From blinded zeal by faction led,
From giddy change by fancy bred,
From poisonous error’s serpent head
Good Lord, preserve us free!


Defend, O God! with guardian hand,
The laws and ruler of our land,
And grant our Church Thy grace to stand
In faith and unity!


Thy Spirit's help of thee we crave,
That thy Messiah, sent to save,
Returning to the world, might have
A people serving thee!


---Alternative verses---


From blinded zeal by faction led,
From giddy change by fancy bred,
From poisoned error’s serpent head
Good Lord, preserve us free!


Defend, O God! with guardian hand,
The laws and ruler of our land,
And grant thy Churches grace to stand
In faith and unity!
