Lord, While for All Mankind We Pray
John R. Wreford, 1837
|Lord, while for all mankind we pray|
Of ev'ry clime and coast,
Oh, hear us for our native land,
The land we love the most!
2. Lord of the nations, thus to Thee
3. Oh, guard our shores from ev'ry foe,
|4. Unite us in the sacred love|
Of knowledge, truth, and Thee;
And let our hills and valleys shout
The songs of liberty.
5. Here may religion, pure and mild,
6. Lord of the nations, thus to Thee
