649 – Lord, While for All Mankind We Pray





1
Lord, while for all mankind we pray
Of every clime and coast,
O hear us for our native land,
The land we love the most!

2
O guard our shores from every foe,
With peace our borders bless;
With prosperous times our cities crown,
Our fields with plenteousness!

3
Unite us in the sacred love
Of knowledge, truth, and Thee;
And let our hills and valleys shout
The songs of liberty.

4
Lord of the nations, thus to Thee
Our country we commend;
Be Thou her Refuge and her trust,
Her everlasting friend.
