Words: Brady and Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David
1 To bless thy chosen race, in mercy, Lord, incline; And cause the brightness of thy face On all thy saints to shine. ·
2 That so thy wondrous ways may through the world be known, While distant lands their tribute pay, and thy salvation own.
3 Let diff'ring nations join to celebrate thy fame; Let all the world, O Lord, combine to praise thy glorious Name.
4 O let them shout and sing with joy and pious mirth, For thou, the righteous Judge and King, shalt govern all the earth.
5 Let diff'ring nations ,join to celebrate thy fame; Let all the world, O Lord, combine to praise thy glorious Name.
6 Then shall the teeming ground a large increase disclose; · And we with plenty shall be crowned, which God, our God, bestows.
7 Then God upon our land shall constant blessings show'r, And all the world in awe shall stand of his resistless pow'r.
