1. Unto Caesar let us render All the things that Caesar’s are, Custom, fear, and tribute tender, Both in time of peace and war.
2. Government is by God’s order, Civil rule by His command, For protection to our border, Safety, peace, throughout the land.
3. By the will of God appointed, All must fear the pow’rs that be; Who lays hand on God’s anointed, Sins against His majesty.
4. Yet we know that worship solely Is the province of our Lord. Only God is pure and holy. Him we praise with one accord.
5. Jesus, giving without measure, Paid the full redemption price. His salvation is a treasure We can never sacrifice.
6. Soul and conscience, faith, devotion, Now belong to God above. His great mercy, like an ocean, Covers us with wondrous love.
7. Fear of any lord but Jesus, Caused by threats of harm or sword, Will not overwhelm or seize us When we trust His pard’ning Word.
8. For officials of our nation Prayers we offer ceaselessly, That God bless them in their station; That our land be just and free.
