Välsigna, Gud, vårt land

Representative Text

1 Välsigna, Gud vårt land,
Sträck ut din starka hand
Till dess försvar!
I dyster motgångstid,
I nattlig storm och strid
Var du det huld och blid,
Som förr du var!

2 Välsigna, Gud, vårt land,
Di frids och sannings band
Omkring det lust!
Och från vån fosterjord
Fördrif allt våld och mord,
Och gjut där med ditt ord
Din Ande ut!
