1 Great God of nations, now to Thee
Our hymn of gratitude we raise;
With humble heart and bending knee
We offer Thee our song of praise.
2 Thy Name we bless, Almighty God,
For all the kindness Thou hast shown
To this fair land the Pilgrims trod,
This land we fondly call our own.
3 Here freedom spreads her banner wide
And casts her soft and hallowed ray;
Here Thou our fathers’ steps didst guide
In safety through their dangerous way.
4 We praise Thee that the gospel’s light
Through all our land its radiance shed,
Dispel the shades of error’s night,
And heav'nly blessings round us spread.
5 Great God, preserve us in Thy fear;
In danger still our Guardian be:
O spread Thy truth’s bright precepts here;
Let all the people worship Thee.
