May God have pity on us all,
For we have taken a downfall;
Blessing us smile with favor,
Since He has sent us a Savior.
May He be merciful with grace,
Enabled to feel His embrace;
Causing His glory to shine bright,
As to see the eternal light.
Then your ways will be known on earth,
That God has known before your birth;
Through all nations of salvation,
For building a new foundation.
Let each of us give thanks to God,
Worshipping through honor and laud;
Let us all give thanks unto Him,
Blessing you with spiritual vim.
Let all the people praise the Lord,
Show that He is love and adored;
Let all the people give Him praise,
Keeping in one accord always.
Let all nations joyfully sing,
All of the creation did bring;
Allowing nations to be glad,
The way our ancestors had.
For God judges everyone,
Our advocate is His Son;
Having justice able to guide,
That our nation can abide.
For He will judge all the people,
With equity through the Gospel;
And rule the nations of the earth,
Showing what creation is worth.
Let the people give thanks to God,
He will heal you where you are flawed;
The Lord will reward your motive,
Through the willingness to forgive.
So much that the Lord did invest,
For the earth to yield its harvest;
Because God is willing to bless,
If we are willing to confess.
