        1. God bless our native land!
        Firm may she ever stand
        Thro' storm and night!
        When the wild tempests rave,
        Ruler of wind and wave
        Do Thou our country save
        By Thy great might.

        2. For her our prayer shall rise
        To God above the skies;
        On Him we wait.
        Thou who art ever nigh,
        Guarding with watchful eye,
        To Thee aloud we cry,
        God save the State! Amen.
