Thy hand, O God, has guided
Tune: Thornbury  
Metre: 7676 767 and refrain  

 

Thy hand, O God, has guided

Thy flock from age to age;

The wondrous tale is written,

Full clear on every page;

Our fathers owned thy goodness,

And we their deeds record;

And both of this bear witness,

One Church, one Faith, one Lord.

 

Thy heralds brought glad tidings

To greatest, as to least;

They bade men rise and hasten

To share the great Kingís feast;

And this was all their teaching,

In every deed and word,

To all alike proclaiming,

One Church, one Faith, one Lord.

 

Through many a day of darkness,

Through many a scene of strife,

The faithful few fought bravely

To guard the nationís life.

Their Gospel of redemption,

Sin pardoned, man restored,

Was all in this enfolded,

One Church, one Faith, one Lord.

 

Thy mercy will not fail us,

Nor leave thy work undone;

With thy right hand to help us,

The victory shall be won;

And then, by men and angels,

Thy Name shall be adored,

And this shall be their anthem:

One Church, one Faith, one Lord.
