Christ, by heavenly hosts adored

Christ, by heavenly hosts adored,
gracious, mighty, sovereign Lord,
God of nations, King of kings,
head of all created things,
by the Church with joy confessed,
God o'er all forever blest;
pleading at thy throne we stand,
save thy people, bless our land.

On our fields of grass and grain
send, O Lord, the kindly rain;
o’er our wide and goodly land
crown the labors of each hand.
Let thy kind protection be
o’er our commerce on the sea:
open, Lord, thy bounteous hand,
bless thy people, bless our land.

Let our rulers ever be
men that love and honor thee;
let the powers by thee ordained
be in righteousness maintained;
in the people's hearts increase
love of piety and peace;
thus united we shall stand
one wide, free, and happy land.

Henry Harbaugh (1817-1867)
