Behold with joy the peaceful state|
Of people where Jehovah reigns
Whose wisdom, power and goodness great
Their glorious freedom still maintain.
2. Happy the land whose rulers are
3. Hail happy place where freedom stands|
And liberty erects its throne
Where fraud and cruel slavery's bands
And tyranny are never known.
4. Where none each other's peace annoys
5. In this free state we would rejoice|
And dwell forevermore in peace
And praise our God with cheerful voice
Who makes our thrall and bondage cease.
