++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  God of mercy, God of grace,

Show us the brightness of Thy face;

Shine upon us, Saviour, shine,

Fill Thy Church with light divine;

And thy saving health extend

Unto earth’s remotest end.

2.  Let the people praise Thee, Lord;

Be by all that live adored.

Let the nations shout and sing

Glory to their Saviour King;

At Thy feet their tribute pay,

And Thy holy will obey.

3.  Let the people praise Thee, Lord;

Earth shall then her fruits afford;

God to man His blessing give,

Men to God devoted live;

All below, and all above,

One in joy, and light, and love.
