Swell the anthem, raise the song,

Praises to our God be-long:

Saints and angels join to sing

Praises to the heavenly King.

Guarded by his watchful eye,

We still stand secure-ly high.

Blessings from his liberal hand,

Flow around this happy land.

Here, beneath bright freedom's ray,

We enjoy a glorious sway-

Never feel oppression's rod-

Always have the smile of God.

Hark! the voice of nature sings

Praises to the King of kings:

Let us join the choral song,

And the grateful notes prolong.
