GOD THE GIVER OF VICTORY AND NATIONAL




While nations, fired with mutual rage,
In fierce contention warfare wage,
God reigns on heaven’s eternal throne,
And makes their will subserve his own.


On horses some their hope repose;
Some urge the chariot on their foes;
But we such feeble trust disclaim;
Our trust is in Jehovah’s name.


The God, whom heaven and earth obey,
Did shield us in the dreadful day;
The God of battles o’er our head
His own victorious banner spread.


The God of battles Thee we own:
The victory, Lord, is thine alone:
To Thee our grateful hearts we raise,
And own thy hand, and sing thy praise.


Oh! when we praise and when we pray,
Do Thou, whom heaven and earth obey,
Accept the praise, confirm the prayer,
And make our safely still thy care.
