National Federation of Music Clubs Hymn

To Thee, Our God, Creator, King

To Thee, our hymn of thanks we sing. Alleluia! Alleluia!

They boundless mercy crowns our days.

Thine be the meed of joyful praise.

 Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

Thy truth and patience make us know,

Toward Thy perfection let us grow. Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thy providence our path has led,

By Thy good grace our souls are fed.

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

Free stands our country, blessed by Thee,

Bless Thou our souls with liberty. Alleluia! Alleluia!

From selfish pride, oh, set us free!

With single hearts to worship Thee!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
