O God, to us show mer­cy and bless us in Thy grace;
Cause Thou to shine upon us the bright­ness of Thy face;
That so Thy way most ho­ly on earth may soon be known,
And un­to ev­ery peo­ple Thy sav­ing grace be shown.

O God, let all men praise Thee, let all the na­tions sing;
In ev­ery land let prais­es and songs of glad­ness ring;
For Thou shalt judge the people in truth and right­eous­ness,
And through the earth the na­tions shall Thy just rule con­fess.

O God, let peo­ple praise Thee, let all the na­tions sing,
For earth in rich abun­dance to us her fruit shall bring.
The Lord our God shall bless us, our God shall bless­ing send,
And all the earth shall fear Him to its re­mot­est end.
