Hymn – Lord of our life, and God of our salvation – Lyrics
Lord of our life and God of our salvation,
Star of our night and hope of ev’ry nation:
Hear and receive thy Church’s supplication,
Lord God Almighty.
Lord, Thou canst help when earthly armor faileth;
Lord, Thou canst save when deadly sin assaileth;
Christ, o’er Thy rock nor death nor hell prevaileth;
Grant us Thy peace, Lord.
Peace, in our hearts, our evil thoughts assuaging,
Peace, in Thy church, where people are engaging,
Peace, when the world its busy war is waging;
Calm thy foes raging!
Grant us Thy grace through trail and temptation;
Grant them Thy truth, thy promise of salvation;
Grant us thy peace in ev’ry heart and nation,
And in Thy heaven.
