Representative Text

1 God gracious be to us, and give
His blessing us unto;
Let him upon us make to shine
His countenance also. Selah.
2 That there may be the knowledge of
Thy way the earth upon:
And also of thy saving health
In every nation.

3 O God let thee the people praise,
Let people all praise thee,
4 O let the nations rejoyce,
And glad O let them be.
For judgment thou with righteousness
Shall give thy folk unto;
The nations that are on the earth,
Thou shalt them lead also.

5 O God, let thee the people praise
Let people all praise thee
6 Her fruit abundant by the earth
Shall then forth yielded be.
7 God ev'n our own God shall us bless,
God bless us surely shall:
And of the eartjh the utmost coasts
They shall him rev'rence all.
