1O God, Who from Thy Throne on High
Dost govern all things, deign to bless
Our King and Nation; hear our cry,
That justice, truth, and holiness
As bulwarks sure may ever stand
To guard and keep our Fatherland.

2On Thine Anointed, Lord, we pray,
Pour down the riches of Thy Grace;
Guide him aright, and, day by day,
Send comfort from Thy Holy Place,
That he but lay his sceptre down
To gain an everlasting crown.

3And not for him alone we plead;
O Lord, in mercy guard and guide
Our gracious Queen, in time of need,
That she may evermore abide
Beneath the shadow of Thy wings,
And know the joy Thy Presence brings.

4So, hand in hand, by Hope made strong,
Through joy and sorrow, peace and strife,
May they, undaunted, press along
The Way that leadeth unto Life,
To cast their crowns before the Throne
Of Him Whom King of kings they own

Amen.
