God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause His face to shine upon us…That Thy way may be known upon earth, Thy saving health among all nations. Psalm 67:1–2
Words: Harriet Auber, The Spirit of the Psalms (London: T. Caddell, 1829), page 61.
On Thy church, O Power divine,
Cause Thy glorious face to shine;
Till the nations from afar
Hail her as their guiding star;
Till her sons from zone to zone
Make Thy great salvation known.
Then shall God, with lavish hand,
Scatter blessings o’er the land;
Earth shall yield her rich increase,
Every breeze shall whisper peace,
And the world’s remotest bound
With the voice of praise resound.
