LORD in Whose Hand the mountains hide,
And deserts dwindle to a span;
Whose Will hath swayed the Ocean's tide
Unchanging since the world began.
God of our Fathers still to Thee
The Nation's voice in praise shall ring,
Who mad'st us mighty, keep us free.
God save our Country and our King.

Lord Who from chaos called to light
The wondrous orb that never dies,
And bade a thousand planets write
Thy Name in fire about the skies.
God of our Fathers still to Thee
The Nation's voice in praise shall ring,
Who mad'st us mighty, keep us free.
God save our Country and our King.

Lord Who with promise fair doth bend
The rainbow's lovely arch of light,
Or bid'st the flaming bolts descend,
The thunders roar, the tempests smite.
God of our Fathers still to Thee
The Nation's voice in praise shall ring,
Who mad'st us mighty, keep us free.
God save our Country and our King.

In Peace, O Lord, be Thou our Stay,
Our Sword and Shield in battle nigh.
Teach us, Thy servants, day by day
Nobly to live, or nobly die.
God of our Fathers still to Thee
The Nation's voice in praise shall ring,
Who mad'st us mighty, keep us free.
God save our Country and our King.
