God of the nations Who from dawn of days




God of the nations,
Who from dawn of days,
Hast led Thy people
in their widening ways,
Through Whose deep purpose
stranger thousands stand
Here in the borders
of our promised land.


Thine ancient might
rebuked the Pharaoh’s boast
Thou wast the shield
for Israel’s marching host,
And, all the ages through,
past crumbling throne
And broken fetter,
Thou hast brought Thine own.


Thy hand has led across
the hungry sea
The eager peoples
flocking to be free,
And, from the breeds of earth,
Thy silent sway
Fashions the nation
of the broadening day.


Then, for Thy grace
to grow in brotherhood,
For hearts aflame to serve
Thy destined good,
For faith, and will to win
what faith shall see,
God of Thy people,
hear us cry to Thee.
