212. O Church of Freedom, Stand

1 O Church of freedom, stand,
A beacon to our land,
In storm and strife!
Inspire us with thy light,
With love of law and right;
Uphold with fearless might
The Word of Life!

2 Church of the Crucified,
Proclaim the death He died,
His royal birth!
Your crowns and branches bring,
Glad hallelujahs sing,
Enthrone Him Lord and King
O'er all the earth!

3 God bless our Church, we pray,
Direct her on her way,
'Mid joy and tears.
Fill her with lowliness,
With love and holiness,
May she Thy grace possess
Through all the years.
