The thoughtless young, the harden'd old,
Be gathered to Thy peaceful fold.
4 Send them Thy mighty word to speak,
And bind and heal the broken heart.
5 Then all these wastes, a dreary scene,
And lift to heaven the voice of praise. Amen.

Our rivers, lakes and fountains, To Thee shall tribute yield. A-men
Till all the tribes an races
That dwell in this fair land, Adorned with Christian graces, Within Thy courts shall stand.

And guide where we should go;
Our land shall own Thee Lord. Amen.
