1. God grant with grace,
He us embrace,
In gentle part,
Bliss be our heart:
With loving face
Shine He in place,
His mercies all
On us to fall.

2. That we Thy way
May know all day,
While we do sail
This world so frail:
Thy health’s reward
Is nigh declared,
As plain at eye
All Gentiles spy

 

3. Let Thee always
The people praise,
O God of bliss,
As due it is:
The people whole
Ought Thee extol,
From whom all thing
They see to spring.

4. All folk rejoice,
Lift up your voice,
For Thou in sight
Shalt judge them right:
Thou shalt direct
The Gentiles sect,
In earth that be
To turn to Thee.

 

5. Let Thee always
The people praise,
O God of bliss,
As due it is:
The people whole
Ought Thee extol,
From whom all thing
They see to spring.

6. The earth shall bud
His fruits so good,
Then thanks most due
From it shall sue:
And God e’en He
Our God most free
Shall bless us aye
From day to day.

 

7. So God our guide
Shall bless us wide
With all increase,
No time to cease:
All folk thereby
On earth which lie
His name shall fear,
And love Him bear.
