Thou wilt not frown our souls away,
Nor our complaints despise
Yet would we not repine;
And bow to thy design.
And bid thine arger stay ;
And turn our night to day. 4 Thy mercy, Lord, we plead,
Let mercy now prevail;
And that can never fail.
C.M. Warburton-Farrant-Canterbury. 1 Lord, while for all mankind we pray,
Of every clime and coast,
The land we love the most.
And here our kindred dwell:
Another land so well!
With peace our borders bless:
With prosperous times our cities crown,
Our fields with plenteousness. 4 Unite us in the sacred love
Of knowledge, truth, and thee:
The songs of liberty.
Upon our Sabbaths smile; And piety and virtue reign,
And bless our native isle.
Our country we commend;
Her everlasting Friend.

C.M. St. Andrew's-St. Ann's Universityl. 1 Shine, mighty God, on Britain shine,
With beams of heavenly grace; Reveal thy power through all our coasts,
And show thy smiling face. 2 Amidst our isle, exalted high,
Do thou our glory stand,
Surround this favoured land.
3 When shall thy name, from shore to shore,
Sound all the earth abroad;
Their Saviour and their God?
Sing loud, with solemn voice; While British tongues exalt his praise,
And British hearts rejoice. 5 He, the great Lord, the sovereign Judge,
That sits enthroned above,
In justice and in love.
And yield a full increase ;
With fruitfulness and peace.
His choicest favours here,
Shall see, adore, and fear.

Thy faithful love, our brethren tend;

So running as to win the race;
A light to lighten future days.

choice For truth, and liberty, and heaven.
