Representative Text

1 We lift our hearts to Thee,
Thou glorious Majesty,
“Ancient of Days!”
For this grand world of ours,
For buds and fragrant flow’rs,
For fruits and gentle show’rs,
Thy name we praise.

2 Thanks for our favored land,
Gift from Thy mighty hand,
Home of the free;
For fruits that here abound,
For peace with plenty crown’d,
And joy and love profound,
We worship Thee.

3 God of eternal love,
Grant, from Thy throne above
Our fervent pray’r:
Guard Thou our future weal,
To us Thyself reveal;
So may we ever feel
Thy tender care.
