FEDERATION HYMN
Vigiles et Sancti, from the Cologne Tune Book, 1623

To Thee, our God, Creator, King,
To Thee our hymn of thanks we sing.
Alleluia, Alleluia.
Thy 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 lead,
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.
