Subject(s): Peace; Prayer


O Lord God of hosts, give ear to our prayer,
For nations in life's maze of tumult and care!
O bid Thou the turmoil and chaos to cease,
And bless the war-world with abiding Peace!
As shadows of darkness and danger appear,
Dear Father our God, oh, hasten to hear!
Grant mists and gray clouds unveil in Thy love
The fair angel of Peace, from the Father above.

Lord, we look unto Thee, Thy mercy implore,
Entreat the door to Peace be barred nevermore!
For thou holdest the key in Thy bosom above,
Where the peace-flower opens in brotherhood love.
Grant the world-wide powers groping through night,
Awake and behold the great day-star of light!
Shining in radiance, and guiding the way
To the glorious dawn, of the world's Peace day!
