Representative Text

1 Lord, on thy people let thy mercy mine,
To us extend thy clemency divine;
2 That to the world thy goodness may be known,
That earth thy great beneficence may own;
3 That thee the realms in joyous songs adore,
And hymning congregations chant thy pow'r.
4 Let ev'ry age exult with pious joy;
Their tongues in praise let all mankind employ;
For thou, of all the sov'reign judge, display'st
Thy righteous justice, and with wisdom sway'st.
5 Praise all thy glorious name, all-pow'rful king,
And in sublimest lays thy mercies sing;
6 For thou shalt glad our lands with rich increase;
With corn, with oil, with wine, the plains thou'lt bless;
7 On the whole earth thy bounties thou shalt pour,
And all her sons with rev'rence shall adore.
