Isaac Watts, Psalm 47, 1719

5. In Israel stood his ancient throne,
He loved that chosen race;
But now he calls the world his own,
And heathens taste his grace.

6. The British islands are the Lord's,
There Abraham's God is known;
While powers and princes, shields and swords,
Submit before his throne.

 

Amended for these editions

5. In Israel stood his ancient throne,
He loved that chosen race;
But now he calls the world his own,
And all men taste his grace.

6. Our cherished country is the Lord's,
There Abraham's God is known;
While powers and princes, shields and swords,
Submit before his throne.
