295. O God of Love, O God of Peace

1 O God of love, O God of peace,
Make wars throughout the world to cease;
The wrath of nations now restrain:
Give peace, O God, give peace again!

2 Remember, Lord, Thy works of old,
The wonders that Thy people told;
Remember not our sin’s deep stain:
Give peace, O God, give peace again!

3 Whom shall we trust but Thee, O Lord?
Where rest but on Thy faithful word?
None ever called on Thee in vain:
Give peace, O God, give peace again!

4 Where saints and angels dwell above,
All hearts are knit in holy love;
O bind us in that heavenly chain:
Give peace, O God, give peace again!
