1 Unto Caesar let us render
All the things that Caesar's are;
Custom, fear and tribute tender,
Both in time of peace and war.
2 Government is by God's order,
Civil rule by His command,
For protection to our border,
Safety, peace, throughout the land.
3 By the will of God appointed,
All must fear the pow'rs that be;
Who lays hand on God's anointed,
Sins against His majesty.
