National Blessings (A Glimpse of Thee) 594

Tune: Jesse Pearlman Karlsberg, 2009
Lyrics: A. A. Woodhull, 1831
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
Great God of nations now to Thee,
Our hymn of gratitude we raise,
With humble heart and bending knee,
We offer Thee our song of praise.


Great God preserve us in thy fear;
In dangers still our guardian be:
O spread Thy truth’s bright precepts here;
Let all the people worship Thee.

Thy name we bless, Almighty God,
For all the kindness Thou hast shown,
To this fair land the Pilgrims trod,
This land we fondly call our own.
