173. Rejoice, O Land, in God Thy Might

1 Rejoice, O land, in God thy might;
his will obey, him serve aright;
for thee the saints uplift their voice;
fear not, O land, in God rejoice.

2 Glad shalt thou be, with blessing crowned;
with joy and peace thou shalt abound;
yea, love with thee shall make its home,
until thou see God's kingdom come.

3 He shall forgive thy sins untold;
remember thou his love of old;
walk in his way, his word adore,
and keep his truth forevermore.
