God of our fathers
Whose almighty hand
Leads forth in beauty
In all the starry band
Of shining worlds
In splendor through the skies
Our grateful songs
Before thy throne arise

Thy love divine
Hath led us in the past
In this free land
By thee our lot is cast
Be thou our Ruler
Guardian, Guide, and Stay
Thy word our law
Thy paths our chosen way

From war’s alarms
From deadly pestilence
Be thy strong arm
Our ever sure defense
Thy true religion
In our heart increase
Thy bounteous goodness
Nourish us in peace
