2 Thou heard'st, well pleased, the song, the
prayer : Thy blessing came ; and still its power Shall onward, through all ages, bear
The memory of that holy hour. 3 Laws, freedom, truth, and faith in God
Came with those exiles o'er the waves ; And where their pilgrim feet have trod,
The God they trusted guards their graves.
4 And here Thy name, O God of love,
Their children's children shall adore, Till these eternal hills remove, And spring adorns the earth no more.
6,6,6,6,8,8. To THEE our God we fly
For mercy and for grace ;
And hide not Thou Thy face.
Be jealous for Thy name,
The sins that put to shame :
În rich abundance pour,
And praise Thee more and more :
4 The powers ordained by Thee
With heavenly wisdom bless ;
Ånd rule in righteousness :
5 The Church of Thy dear Son
Inflame with love's pure fire;
And life and truth inspire :
6 The pastors of Thy fold
With grace and power endue,
They may be pastors true :
7 Give peace, Lord, in our time;
0 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.
W. W. How.
Thro storm and night!
By Thy great might.
2 For her our prayer shall rise
On Him we wait;

11,10,11,9. God the all-merciful! earth hath forsaken Thy ways of blessedness, slighted Thy
word ; Bid not Thy wrath in its terrors awaken ;
Give to us peace in our time, O Lord. 2 God the all-righteous One! man hath de
fied Thee ; Yet to eternity standeth Thy word, Falsehood and wrong shall not tarry beside
Give to us peace in our time, O Lord. 3 God the all-wise! by the fire of Thy
chast’ning, Earth shall to freedom and truth be
restored ; Through the thick darkness Thy kingdom
is hastening; Thou wilt give peace in Thy time, O
4 So will Thy people, with thankful devotion,
Praise Him Who saved them from peril
and sword, Shouting in chorus from ocean to ocean, Peace to the nations, and praise to the Lord.
H. F. Chorley. J. Ellerton.
Of thee I sing ;
Let freedom ring!
Thy name I love ;
Like that above.
3 Let music swell the breeze,
Sweet freedom's song :
The sound prolong.
To Thee we sing :
S. F. Smith.
C. M. 754 GREAT King of nations, hear our prayer,
While at Thy feet we fall, And humbly with united cry
To Thee for mercy call ;
The guilt is ours, but grace is Thine,
O turn us not away ;
And help us when we pray.
And ours no less we own,
Thy goodness hath been shown;
Beset our country round,
And help in Thee was found.
Beneath Thy chastening hand, And, pouring forth confession meet,
Mourn with our mourning land ;
As thus we lift our prayer;
J. H. Gurney.
10s. GOD of our fathers, whose almighty hand Leads forth in beauty all the starry band Of shining worlds in splendor thro' the
skies, Our grateful songs before Thy throne
2 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
