1Lord of Might, our land’s Defender,
God of hosts, our Strength and Stay,
Thanks and praise to Thee we render
For Thy mercies day by day;
While our prayer to Thee we bring–
Guard our land and shield our King!
2Lord of Joy, we stand confessing
Wealth and honor come from Thee;
Pour upon us of Thy blessing,
May we all Thy mercy see;
But should grief its shadow fling,
Guard our land and shield our King!
3Lord of Peace, by land and ocean
Bind our world-wide realms in one,
May they all with true devotion
Gather round our ancient throne;
While each heart this prayer shall bring,
Guard our land and shield our King!
4Lord of lords, the God of Heaven,
On our King Thy blessings shower,
May Thy strength to him be given,
Guide and guard him by Thy power;
Then, where deathless triumphs ring,
In Thy kingdom crown our King! Amen.
Psalm72:1Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son.
