Com Braço Forte

Representative Text

1 Com braço forte, Deus de nossos pais,
Reges os grandes mundos celestiais
E os conservas em evolução—
Quão poderosa é a tua mão!

2 Sê nosso guia, protetor e rei;
Queremos vida nova em tua lei
E, para sempre, a salvação fruir,
Pois nada mais irá nos afligir.

3 És nossa força para suportar
Todas as dores, sem capitular!
Sê nosso alento, ó poderoso Deus,
E gratidão terás dos filhos Teus!
