God of Our Fathers


untitled

God of our fathers, whose almighty hand

Leads forth in beauty all the starry band

of shining worlds in splendor through the skies

Our grateful songs before Thy throne arise.

Thy love divine hath led us in the past.

In this free land by Thee our lot is cast.

Thy love divine hath led us in the past,

In this free land by Thee our lot is cast.

Be Thou our Ruler, Guardian, and Stay,

Thy Word our law, Thy paths our chosen way.

“…O Lord, God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven?  and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? …” (II Chronicles 20:6).
