Nahum Tate 

To bless thy chosen race,
In mercy, Lord, incline,

Psalm lxvii.

 

To bless thy chosen race,
In mercy, Lord, incline,
And cause the brightness of thy face
On all thy saints to shine;

That so thy wondrous way
May through the world be known;
While distant lands their tribute pay,
And thy salvation own.

Let all the nations join
To celebrate thy fame:
Yea, let the world, O Lord, combine
To praise thy glorious name!

O let them shout and sing
With joy and pious mirth!
For thou, the righteous Judge and King,
Shalt govern all the earth.
