Verse 1:
G                 C
When wilt Thou save the people
Am           D
Oh, God of mercy when?
G               C
Not kings and lords but nations,
Am               F           Dsus D
Not thrones and crowns but men?

Em      Bm       C D
Flowers of Thy heart
Em   Bm        C D
Oh, God, are they,
Em  Bm        C        G     Am
Let them not pass like weeds away

Verse 2:
Shall crime bring crime forever
Strenth aiding still the strong?
Is it Thy will of Father,
That man shall toil for wrong?

No, say Thy mountains,
No, say Thy skies,
Man's clouded sun shall brightly rise,
And songs be heard
Instead of sighs.
God save the people.


Verse 3:
When wilt thous save the people
Oh, God of mercy when?
The people, Lord, the people,
Not thrones and crowns but men?

God save the people,
For Thine they are,
Thy children, as Thy angels fair,
Save the people
From despair.
God save the people.

God save the people, x4
