God the Almighty One

God the almighty One!Wisely ordaining

Judgements unsearchable,famine and sword;

Over the tumult of warThou art reigning:

 

Give to us peace in our time, O Lord!

 

God the all merciful!Earth hath forsaken

Thy ways of blessedness,slighted Thy Word;

Bid not Thy wrath inits terrors awaken:

Give to us peace in our time, O Lord!

 

God the all-righteous One!Man hath defied Thee;

Yet to eternity standeth Thy Word;Falsehood and wrong shall nottarry beside Thee:

Give to us peace in our time, O Lord!
