1 O people blest, whose sons in youth,
in sturdy strength and noble truth,
like plants in vigor spring;
whose daughters fair, a queenly race,
are like the cornerstones that grace
the palace of a king,
the palace of a king.
2 O people blest, when flock and field
their rich, abundant increase yield,
and blessings multiply;
when plenty all thy children share,
and no invading foe is there,
and no distressful cry,
and no distressful cry.
3 O happy people, favored land,
to whom the Lord with lib'ral hand
has thus his goodness shown;
yea, surely is that people blest
by whom Jehovah is confessed
to be their God alone,
to be their God alone.
