1 O God, beneath your guiding hand
Our exiled fathers crossed the sea;
And echoed o'er the wintry strand,
Their psalms and prayers in worship free.
2 You heard, well-pleased, the song, the prayer:
Your blessing came, and still its power
Shall onward through all ages bear
The memory of that holy hour.
3 Laws, freedom, truth, and faith in God
Came with those exiles o'er the waves,
And where their pilgrim feet have trod,
The God they trusted guards their graves.
4 And here your name, O God of love,
Their children's children shall adore,
Till these eternal hills remove,
And spring adorns the earth no more.
