Melita (Tune 252).png
Melita

1 God be merciful and bless us; 

shine upon us with your face, 

2 That the earth may know your actions 

and all lands your saving grace. 

3 O God, may the peoples praise you; 

may all peoples sing your praise. 

4 For you judge the nations justly, 

ruling over every race. 

May the sing with joy and gladness; 

may they all rejoice as one. 

5 O God, may the peoples praise you 

as they all unite in song. 

6 Then the land will yield its harvest; 

God will pour his gifts abroad

7 God, our God, will surely bless us; 

all the earth will fear our God.
