O GOD With Goodness All Thy Own

John Quincy Adams

O GOD with goodness all thy own
In mercy cause thy face to shine;
So shall thy ways on earth be known,
Thy saving health and power divine:
O let the gladdening nations sing,
And praise thy name with hallowed mirth,
For thou of righteousness art King,
And rulest all the subject earth.

O let the people praise the Lord;
The people all thy praise express;
And earth her plenty shall afford,
And God yea, our own God, shall bless;
Our God his blessing shall bestow;
His power, his goodness, shall appear;
And all the ends of earth shall know
And worship him with holy fear.
