182. To thee our God we fly


Charles Steggall, 1858


W. Walsham How, 1871

To thee our God we fly

For mercy and for grace;

O hear our lowly cry

And hide not thou thy face.

Arise, O Lord of hosts;

Be jealous for thy Name,

And drive from out our coasts

The sins that put to shame.

Thy best gifts from on high

In rich abundance pour

That we may magnify

And praise thee more and more.

The powers ordained by thee,

With heavenly wisdom bless;

May they thy servants be,

And rule in righteousness.

The Church of thy dear Son

Inflame with love's pure fire,

Bind her once more in one,

And life and truth inspire.

Give peace, Lord, in our time;

O let no foe draw nigh,

Nor lawless deed of crime

Insult thy Majesty.

O Lord, stretch forth thy mighty hand,

And guard and bless our fatherland.
