Lord, Thou Hast Greatly Blessed Our Land


Lord, Thou hast greatly
blessed our land,
Thou hast brought back our
captive band,
Thy pardoning grace has made
us free
And covered our iniquity.
O Thou, Who in a former day
Didst turn Thy dreadful
wrath away,
In grace Thy people, Lord,
return,
And let Thy wrath no longer
burn.O will Thine anger never
cease,
Forever shall Thy wrath
increase?
Receive and quicken us once
more,
And Thy salvation’s joy
restore.To us Thy mercy now
afford
And show us Thy salvation,
Lord;
Yea, Thou wilt answer us in
peace,
If from our folly we will
cease.The Lord’s salvation will
appear
To men of faith and godly
fear,
And glory in our land shall
dwell
When we shall heed God’s
precepts well.Now truth agrees with
mercy mild,
Now law and peace are
reconciled;
Behold the truth from earth
arise,
With justice shining from
the skies.The Lord will send His
blessing down,
And harvests all our land
shall crown;
Before Him righteousness
abides,
And in His footsteps our
feet He guides.
