491. O God of Love, O King of Peace

1 O God of love, O King of peace,
make wars throughout the world to cease;
the wrath of sinful man restrain;
give peace, O God, give peace again!

2 Remember, Lord, thy works of old,
the wonders that our fathers told;
remember not our sin's dark 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 heav'nly chain;
give peace, O God, give peace again!
