Unto Caesar Let us Render

This hymn was written by American Lutheran pastor and hymn-translator Emmanuel Cronenwett (1841-1931).

The tune it was originally sung to is unknown - but with meter 8787, it can be sung to:
  • DRAKES BROUGHTON by Edward Elgar (1857-1934)
  • CROSS OF JESUS by John Stainer (1840-1901)




Unto Caesar let us render
All things that Caesar's are;
Custom, fear and tribute tender,
Both in peace and time of war.

Government is by God's order
Civil rule by his command;
For protection to our border,
Safety, peace, throughout the land.

By the will of God appointed,
All must fear the power that be;
Who lays hand on God's anointed
Sins against his majesty.
