Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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

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

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Two empires by the sea

Full Text

1 Two empires by the sea,
Two nations great and free,
One anthem raise.
One race of ancient fame,
One tongue, one faith, we claim,
One God whose glorious name
We love and praise.

2 What deeds our fathers wrought,
What battles we have fought,
Let fame records.
Now, vengeful passion, cease,
Come, victories of peace;
Nor hate nor pride's caprice
Unsheathe the sword.

3 Now, may the God above
Guard the dear lands we love;
Or East or West;
Let love more fervent glow,
As peaceful ages go,
And strength yet stronger grow,
Blessing and blest.
