Songs We Like to Sing

Lord, While For All Mankind We Pray

     J. R. Wreford                                         G. Rossini

Lord, while for all mankind we pray,
Of ev'ry clime and coast,
O hear us for our native land,
The land we love the most.

O guard our shores from ev'ry foe;
With peace our borders bless,
Our cities with prosperity,
Our fields with plenteousness.

Unite us in the sacred love
Of knowledge, truth, and thee;
And let our hills and valleys shout
The songs of liberty.
