O bless Thou, Heavenly PotentateTune: OLD HUNDREDTH
Published in 4 hymnals
1 O bless, Thou heavenly Potentate,
With wisdom, strength, the powers of state,
That wrong and violence may cease,
And Church and home abide in peace.
2 Bless rich and poor, the great and small,
Both friend and foe; Lord, bless Thou all
The family on earth in love,
And fit all for Thy home above.
3 Thus, with Thy blessing on each hand,
Will peace and plenty fill the land,
And righteousness spring from the earth,
And life below have higher worth.
4 All praise to Thee, O King of kings,
Whose grace to us such blessing brings;
Thee, with the Father, we adore,
And Holy Ghost, forevermore.
