O LORD our God, arise
O LORD our God, arise!
The cause of truth maintain,
And wide o'er all the peopled world
Extend her blessed reign.
2 Thou Prince of life, arise!
Nor let thy glory cease;
Far spread the conquests of thy grace,
And bless the earth with peace.
3 O Holy Ghost, arise!
Spread forth thy quickening wing,
And o'er a dark and ruined world
Let light and order spring.
4 All on the earth, arise!
To God the Saviour sing;
From shore to shore, from earth to heaven
Let echoing anthems ring.
