God be our Trust


God be our Trust!

God save our Southern land, God be our trust!
Storms rage on ev’ry hand, God be our trust!
Thou, who the tempest laid,
Let none our homes invade,
Foil now the savage raid—God be our trust!

Outraged though be our laws, God be our trust!
Spurned too our holy cause, God be our trust!
Send, send the righteous blow,
Strike Thou, the tyrants low,
Scatter the murd’rous foe—God be our trust!

Though madly press’d by might, God be our trust!
Let triumph bless the right, God be our trust!
Quickly the time will come,
Soon sound their fated doom,
Then, Freemen, strike for home, God be our trust!

Let not our courage fail, God be our trust!
True hearts will yet prevail, God be our trust!
Right firmly let us stand,
Strike manly hand with hand,
God, for our sunny land!—God be our trust!
