Full Text

1 Shine, mighty God, on Britain shine
With beams of heav'nly grace;
Reveal thy pow'r thro' all our coasts,
And shew thy smiling face.

2 [Amidst our isle exalted high
Do thou our glory stand,
And like a wall of guardian fire
Surround the fav'rite land.]

3 When shall thy name from shore to shore
Sound all the earth abroad,
And distant nations know and love
Their Saviour and their God?

4 Sing to the Lord, ye distant lands,
Sing loud with solemn voice;
While British tongues exalt his praise,
And British hearts rejoice.

5 He the great Lord, the sov'reign judge,
That sits enthron'd above,
In wisdom rules the worlds he made
In justice and in love.

6 Earth shall obey her maker's will,
And yield a full increase;
Our God will crown his chosen isle
With fruitfulness and peace.

7 God the Redeemer scatters round
His choicest favors here,
While the creation's utmost bound
Shall see, adore, and fear.
