Thy soul from every ill. 5 At home, abroad, in peace, in war,
Thy God shall thee defend ; Conduct thee through life's pilgrimage,
Safe to thy journey's end.

Thy palaces be crown'd. 6 For my dear brethren's sake, and friends
No less than brethren dear, I'll pray-May peace in Salem's towers
A constant guest appear.
And ever wish thee well,
Where God vouchsases to dwell.

That earth's deep caverns fill. 6 Their just returns of thanks to God
Let grateful Israel pay; Nor let anointed Aaron's race
To bless the LORD delay.
Let Levi's house express;
His Name for ever bless. 8 Let all with thanks his wondrous works
In Sion's courts proclaim;
Exalt his holy Name.
