1. O God, we pray for all mankind,
The nations far astray;
We plead that all Thy grace may find,
In this Thy gracious day,
In this Thy gracious day.

2. Thou knowest, Lord, man’s sinful state,
The source of human woe,
His evil heart, his greed and hate,
But whither can he go?
But whither can he go?

3. With humble plea on Thee we call
For nations in distress;
Of one hast Thou not made us all?
O God, our kindred bless,
O God, our kindred bless!

4. Help all the nations, near and far,
Awake, Thy glory see;
Behold, the bright and morning star,
The Christ of Calvary,
The Christ of Calvary.
