1 We will tell each generation
all that you, our God, have done;
how you called and led our nation,
chose us out to be your own:

2 Tell the times of our rebelling
how we wandered from your way,
how your law our love compelling
taught us humbly to obey:

3 Tell how once, when spite and terror
threatened to engulf our land,
you defended us with vigour,
saved us by a mighty hand.

4 Tell the grace that falls from heaven,
angels' food as faith's reward;
tell how sins may be forgiven
through the mercy of the Lord.

After Psalm 78, Michael Perry (1942 - 1996)
