O God, Who Watches All Our Ways
O God, who watches all our ways,
Our nation lifts its grateful praise.
For this our home, where safe we live,
Unending gratitude we give.
Lord, be the guard of its true peace,
Thou author of its liberties!
In humble thanks we intercede
For those who serve and those who lead:
Grant wisdom to authorities,
That they might guide us righteously.
Protect those who serve faithfully
To build and bless society.
Revive us, Lord, and grant your church
Pow'r to proclaim your holy Word;
Breathe life into our hearts of stone,
That they may beat for you alone.
Lord, flood this nation with your grace
Till we return unceasing praise.
Lord, we give thanks upon this day
For all the nations you have made.
For both our friends and enemies,
In Christian love we intercede.
And may you draw all nations to
The blessedness of knowing you.
Oh, let your holy Kingdom come,
Here and abroad, your will be done!
As trav'lers in this pilgrim land,
We long to see our true homeland;
Until that day, let this place be
A mirror of your Kingdom's peace.
