45. Lord, bless and pity us

1 Lord, bless and pity us,
shine on us with your face:
that your way may be known on earth,
all nations know your grace.

2 Let people praise you, Lord;
let all the people praise.
Oh, let the nations all be glad,
in songs their voices raise:

3 You'll justly people judge,
on earth rule nations all.
Let people praise you, Lord; let them
praise you, both great and small.

4 The earth her fruit shall yield,
our God shall blessing send.
God shall us bless; all shall him fear
unto earth's utmost end.
