1. To Thee, above all creatures' gaze,
To Thee, whom earth and heaven praise,
Whose ever watchful providence
Proves daily Thine omnipotence
To Thee our thanks in chorus rise.
2. Thou didst redeem the captive band,
Who were enslaved by tyrant's hand ;
Their cries were heard, their groans were stilled,
Their yearning hopes at last fulfilled,
And freedom dawned on Lebanon.
3. O God, Thy children recognize
With grateful hearts this precious prize
Thy people at this holy shrine
Proclaim aloud Thy power divine :
" THE LORD WILL EEIGN FOR EVERMORE "
