Original text and translations
Had we but hearkened to thy Word
And followed in thy way,
The clouds would ne’er have gathered now,
Nor darkness shroud the day.
Yet through thine everlasting love,
Our Saviour standing near,
Surely we would seek the light,
Had we more faith than fear.
We then should see thee, King of Peace,
Behold a land that is free,
Where youth would glow with happiness
To live in unity.
Now may we put our trust in thee,
And muster to thy call;
For men shall find their strength in thee
To triumph over all.
