646 ~ To the Name That Brings Salvation


To the name that brings salvation Let the nations bow the head; Let them kneel in adoration When this name of names is said; Let them pray for restoration Of all things in Christ the head.


He through every generation Rules in endless majesty; May the kings of every nation Now foreswear their enmity, And with humble veneration In the love of God agree.


Lord, we pray for upright rulers: Guard them surely in their need From the vanity of power And the emptiness of greed; Let them see the truth of lowness, And on justice let them feed.
