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

On thy church, O Power Divine,

Cause the glorious face to shine;

Till the nations from afar

Hail her as their guiding star;

Till her sons from zone to zone

Make thy great salvation known.

+++++

Then shall God, with lavish hand,

Scatter blessings o’er the land;

Earth shall yield her rich increase,

Every breeze shall whisper peace,

And the world’s remotest bound

With the voice of praise resound.

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