1 God of the farmlands, hear our prayer,
God of the growing seed,
O bless the fields, for to your care
we look in all our need.
2 God of the rivers in their course,
God of the swelling sea,
where we must strive with nature’s force,
our guardian ever be.
3 God of the dark and sombre mine,
God of its hard-won store,
your love through toil and peril shine,
your strength our hope secure.
4 God of the city’s throbbing heart,
God of its industry,
bid greed and base deceit depart,
give true prosperity.
5 Source of authority and right,
God of all earthly power,
to those who govern grant your light,
your wisdom be their dower.
6 God of the nations, women, men,
God of each humble soul,
we seek your gracious aid again:
O come and make us whole.
