The Queen, O God, her heart

The Queen, O God, her heart to thee upraiseth;
with her the nation bows before thy face;
with high thanksgiving thee thy glad Church praiseth,
our strength thy spirit, our trust and hope thy grace.

Unto great honor, glory undeserèd,
hast thou exalted us and drawn thee nigh;
nor, from thy judgments when our feet had swervèd,
didst thou forsake, nor leave us, Lord most high.

In thee our fathers trusted and were savèd,
in thee destroyèd thrones of tyrants proud;
from ancient bondage freed the poor enslavèd;
to sow thy truth poured out their saintly blood.

Unto our minds give freedom and uprightness;
let strength and courage lead o'er land and wave;
to our souls' armor grant celestial brightness,
joy to our hearts and faith beyond the grave.

Our plenteous nation still in power extending,
increase our joy, uphold us by thy word;
beauty and wisdom all our ways attending,
good will to man and peace through Christ our Lord.
