1God bless our native land!
May heaven’s protecting hand
Still guard our shore;
May Peace her power extend,
Foe be transformed to friend,
And Britain’s rights depend
On might no more.
2May just and righteous laws
Uphold the public cause
And bless our isle.
Home of the brave and free,
The land of liberty,
We pray that still on thee
Kind heaven may smile:
3And not this land alone,
But be Thy mercies known
From shore to shore.
Lord, make the nations see
That men should brothers be
And form one family,
The wide world o’er. Amen.
