3 O beautiful, our country!

Round thee in love we draw;
Thine be the grace of freedom,

The majesty of law.
Be righteousness thy sceptre,

Justice thy diadem;
And on thy shining forehead
Be peace the crowning gem! Amen.

wrath of sin - ful man re-strain; Give peace, O God, give peace a-gain. A-men.

Remember, Lord, Thy works of old,
The wonders that our fathers told;

Remember not our sin's dark stain:

Give peace, O God, give peace again.

3
Whom shall we trust but Thee, O Lord ?
Where rest but on Thy faithful word?
None ever called on Thee in vain;
Give peace, O God, give peace again.

4
Where saints and angels dwell above,
All hearts are knit in holy love;
O bind us in that heavenly chain;
Give peace, O God, give peace again. Amen.

3 When wilt Thou save the people ?

O God of mercy, when ? The people, Lord, the people,

Not thrones and crowns, but men! God save the people; Thine they are, Thy children, as Thine angels fair. From vice, oppression, and despair, God save the people! Amen.

Her everlasting Friend. Amen.
