Lord of All Nations, Grant Me Grace

Full Text

1 Lord of all nations, grant me grace
To love all men of every race
And in each fellowman to see
My brother, loved, redeemed by thee.

2 Break down the wall that would divide
Thy children, Lord, on every side.
Let me seek my neighbor's good
In bonds of Christian brotherhood.

3 Forgive me, Lord, where I have erred
By loveless act and thoughtless word.
Make me to see the wrong I do
Will crucify my Lord anew.

4 Give me thy courage, Lord, to speak
Whenever strong oppress the weak.
Should I myself the victim be,
Help me forgive, remembering thee.

5 With thine own love may I be filled
And by thy Holy Spirit willed,
That all I touch, where'er I be,
May be divinely touched by thee.
