102. God protect us!

by George G. W. Morgan.
air--“God save the Queen.”

O Lord, we humbly pray,
     Thy blessing here to-day
On us may fall;
     Grant us our earnest prayer,
Shield those who need our care,
     Let them Thy blessings share,--
God save us all!

[86] O Lord, we'd lead the van,
     E'er in behalf of man,
When held in thrall;
     Be with us in the fight,
Now in the cause of right;
     Cursed be the Slaver's might,--
God save us all!

O Lord, we fain would pray,
     Thy grace forever may
Direct this war;
     And where our flag's unfurled,
Be Freedom's gauntlet hurled,
     Bid Justice rule the world
For evermore.1

1 Dedicated to England's gallant sons, the New York British rifle Regiment, by their admiring fellow-countryman.
