Edvard H. Grieg (1843-1907)

O God of Hosts, with Thy strong hand,
Protect the sons of our fair land;
Be Thou our Shield in war or peace,
And guide our steps till life shall cease.

Thou Lord, defend this land of ours,
Its smiling shores, its mountain towers;
Thy blessing on its future shed
Like morning dew when night is fled.

In truth and light we fain would grow,
Thy laws would love, Thy Word would know;
In Thee we will for aye abide;
O Lord of all, be Thou our guide!
