Hymn/Song Information

Lord thou hast bid thy people pray




Lord, thou hast bid thy people pray
For all that bear the sovereign sway,
And thy vicegerents reign, -
Rulers, and governors, and powers;
And lo, in faith we pray for ours,
Nor can we pray in vain!


Jesu, thy chosen servant guard,
And every threatening danger ward
From his anointed head;
Bid all his griefs and troubles cease,
And through the paths of heavenly peace
To life eternal lead.


Cover his enemies with shame,
Defeat their every hostile aim,
Their baffled hopes destroy:
But shower on him thy blessings down,
Crown him with grace, with glory crown,
And everlasting joy.


To hoary hairs be thou his God;
Late may he reach that high abode,
Late to his heaven remove;
Of virtues full, and happy days,
Accounted worthy by thy grace
To fill a throne above.


Secure us, of his royal race,
A man to stand before thy face,
And exercise thy power:
With wealth, prosperity, and peace,
Our nation and our churches bless,
Till time shall be no more.
