AND TO ALL CHRISTIAN NATIONS GRANT REPOSE (HYMN)

31 Jan

Be thou, the guardian of thy native land,

And to all Christian nations grant repose

From din of arms, and every hostile band –

From all our borders drive away our foes.

 

On thee our hopes are built, as on a tower;

Receive the homage we now humbly pay,

The vows which Rome accomplishes this hour,

With pious rites, and canticles’ sweet lay.

 

Keep far from us all dangerous delight,

O God, who comfortest thy Martyrs’ pain;

One God in Persons Three, bestow thy light

Wherewith thou makest strong thy Martyrs slain. Amen.
