Lord God, we worship thee!

In loud and happy chorus

We praise thy love and power,

Whose goodness reigneth o'er us.

To heaven our song shall soar,

For ever shall it be

Resounding o'er and o'er,

Lord God, we worship thee!

400

Lord God, we worship thee!

For thou our land defendest;

Thou pourest down thy grace,

And strife and war thou endest.

Since golden peace, O Lord,

Thou grantest us to see,

Our land, with one accord,

Lord God! gives thanks to thee!

Lord God, we worship thee!

Thou didst indeed chastise us,

Yet still thy anger spares,

And still thy mercy tries us:

Once more our Father's hand

Doth bid our sorrows flee,

And peace rejoice our land:

Lord God, we worship thee!

Amen.
