Lyrics

O God of love, O King of peace,
make wars throughout the world to cease;
our greed and sinful wrath restrain.
Give peace, O God, give peace again.
Remember, Lord, your works of old,
the wonders that our fathers told;
remember not our sin's dark stain;
give peace, O God, give peace again.
Whom shall we trust but you, O Lord?
Where rest but on your faithful Word?
None ever called on you in vain;
give peace, O God, give peace again.
Where saints and angels dwell above
all hearts are knit in holy love;
O bind us in that heav'nly chain;
give peace, O God, give peace again.
