1 We praise Thee, O God, our Lord and our King!
Accept Thou the praise we gratefully bring;
Thanksgiving and worship we offer to Thee,
Thou Ruler of nations, in whom we are free!
2 We praise Thee, O God, for Thy guiding hand,
In leading Thy Church to freedom's fair land;
Thro' sore persecution our fathers here came,
Where free and unfettered they worshiped Thy Name.
3 We praise Thee, O God, for years of increase,
For faith unassailed, prosperity, peace;
United we offer our anthem of praise
To Thee our Supporter, our Ancient of Days.
4 We pray Thee, O Christ, our Savior and Friend!
From error and strife, Thy Zion defend!
Breathe on us, we pray Thee, O Spirit of Love,
And fit us for union with Thy Church above.
