The Otterbein Hymnal by Edmund S. Lorenz

541 Chesterfield. C.M.

Prayer for the Nation. (1217)

Lord! while for all mankind we pray,
Of ev'ry clime and coast,
Oh! hear us for our native land, --
The land we love the most.

2 Oh! guard our shore from ev'ry foe,
With peace our borders bless,
With prosperous times our cities crown,
Our fields with plenteousness.

3 Unite us in the sacred love
Of knowledge, truth, and thee;
And let our hills and valleys shout
The songs of liberty.

4 Lord of the nations! thus to thee
Our country we commend;
Be thou her Refuge and her Trust,
Her everlasting Friend.

John Reynell Wreford, 1837.
