Lord God of holiness,
Source of all blessedness,
Direct our ways.
O may Thy mercy flow,
Thro’ all the earth below,
And every good bestow,
Thro’ all our days.

Thou dost all nations prove,
By Thy blest Word they move,
Thy Word and love;
O shed Thy holy light,
Around our pathway bright,
And lead us ever right,
O Lord above.

All fountains from Thee flow,
The sunbeams dost bestow,
The increase give;
Then may our land be blest,
With Thy rich bounties’ best,
And with Thy heav’nly rest,
In whom we live.

Now may our hearts rejoice,
And with united voice,
Thy praises sing.
O may sweet anthems ring,
From all the nations spring,
To Thee all glory bring,
Jehovah King.
