Representative Text

1. Bless, Lord, thine heritage,
In thine abundant grace;
Let on thy servants ever shine
The brightness of thy face.
2. That so thy righteous ways
May through the earth be known;
And all the nations of the world
May thy salvation, own.

3. In praise to thee, O God,
Let thine own people join;
And may the gentile world, in songs
Of praise, to thee, combine.
4. O let the nations all
Be glad, and cheerful sing;
For thou art, over all the earth,
A just, and gracious King.

5. In praise to thee, O God,
Let thine own people join;
And may the gentile world, in songs
Of praise, to thee, combine.
6. Then the earth shall plenty yield;
And God shall bless our store.
7. Our own God shall us bless; the world
Shall fear and him adore.
