JUDGE of the earth who wilt arraign
The nations at Thy judgment seat,
With life and favour bless again
Thy prostrate people at Thy feet.
And mayest Thou our morning prayer
Receive, O Lord, as though it were
The offering that was wont to be
Brought day by day continually.

Thou who art clothed with righteousness,
Supreme exalted over all,
How oftsoever we transgress,
Do Thou with pardoning love recall
Those who in Hebron sleep; and let
Their memory live before Thee yet,
Even as the offering unto Thee
Offered of old continually.

Trust in God's strength and be ye strong,
My people and His laws obey,
Then will He pardon sin and wrong,
Then mercy will His wrath outweigh.
Seek ye His presence and implore
His countenance forevermore,
Then shall your prayers accepted be
As offerings brought continually.
