1 Our pilgrim brethren dwelling far, --
O God of truth and love,
Light thou their path with thine own star,
Bright beaming from above.
2 Wide as their mighty rivers flow,
Let thine own truth extend;
Where prairies spread and forests grow,
O Lord, thy gospel send.
3 Then will a mighty nation own
A union firm and strong; --
The sceptre of th' eternal throne
Shall rule its councils long.
