To bless Thy chosen race,
In mercy, Lord, incline;
And cause the brightness of Thy face
On all Thy saints to shine.

That so Thy wondrous way
May through the world be known;
While distant lands their homage pay,
And Thy salvation own.

Let all the nations join
To celebrate Thy fame;
And all the world, O Lord, combine
To praise Thy glorious name.
