649 ~ Lord, While for All Mankind



1

Lord, while for all mankind we pray,
Of every clime and coast,
O hear us for our native land,
The land we love the most.


2

O guard our shores from every foe;
With peace our borders bless;
With prosperous times our cities crown,
Our fields with plenteousness.


3

Unite us in the sacred love
Of knowledge, truth, and Thee,
And let our hills and valleys shout
The songs of liberty.


4

Lord of the nations, thus to Thee
Our country we commend;
Be Thou her refuge and her trust,
Her everlasting friend.
