Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Shine, mighty God, on this our land

Shine, mighty God, on this our land

Published in 9 hymnals

Representative 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.
