Merciful Father and God of all love,
Lowly we bow to Thy Throne far above,
Seeking Thy guidance and peace on our way,
Thou Knowest best what is good in our day.

Teach us in faith to submit to Thy will,
Loyal at Heart though out lot may seem ill.
Knowing that all must confess Thy control,
Bright golden gifts from Thy treasures unroll.

Neath sunny skies in this fair Austral land,
High is Thy mandate from mountain to strand.
Ne'er let vice flourish or war show its head,
Prostrating formen on strifes gory bed.

Then shall the people extol Thy great name.
Anthem and Chorus shall swell out Thy fame,
Woollands re-echo the song of the shore.
Glory to Thee shall ascent ever more.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah. Amen, Amen, Amen.
