In loving adoration, We come to worship Thee,
Thou author of salvation So wonderful, so free.
Oh, teach us how to praise Thee, As we before Thee stand,
And hear us as we pray Thee To bless our own dear land
For millions still in darkness Within this land of light,
For men who’ve wandered blindly From home and God and right,
And those who ne’er have seen Thee, Thou God of love and might,
We earnestly beseech Thee— May they receive their sight.
3 Be Thou our strong defender, Our confidence alone;
Be Thou our country’s ruler, Our nation’s cornerstone;
And thus led by Thy Spirit, And heeding Thy blest Word,
From ocean unto ocean all men shall call Thee Lord!
