God Save Our President

Lord, hear the nation plead,
In this, her hour of need;
     Stretch forth Thy hand,
Before Thy throne, oh Thou
Great God, we humbly bow,
From sorrow spare us now;
     Preserve our land.

Let grace from heaven be sent,
Oh Thou omnipotent
God save our President,
     God bless our land;
In weakness and dismay,
Dear Lord, be Thou our stay,
     Thy servant spare.

Voices and hearts to Thee,
We lift imploringly,
Oh hear our earnest plea,
     Hear Thou our prayer.

Thou God of love and peace,
The nation’s grief shall cease,
     At Thy command.
Let grace from heaven be sent,
Oh Thou omnipotent,
God save our President,
     God bless our land.
