Lord Of Our Life : Lyrics
1. Lord of our life and God of our salvation,
Star of our night and Hope of ev’ry nation:
Hear and receive Your Church’s supplication,
Lord God Almighty.
2. See round Your ark the hungry billows curling;
See how Your foes their banners are unfurling
And with great spite their fiery darts are hurling,
O Lord, preserve us.
3. Lord, be our light when worldly darkness veils us;
Lord, be our shield when earthly armour fails us;
And in the day when hell itself assails us,
Grant us Your peace, Lord:
4. Peace in our hearts, where sinful thoughts are raging,
Peace in Your Church, our troubled souls assuaging,
Peace when the world its endless war is waging,
Peace in Your heaven.
