O God of every nation

O God of ev'ry nation,
Of ev'ry race and land,
Redeem your whole creation
With your almighty hand;
Where hate and fear divide us
and bitter threats are hurled,
In love and mercy guide us
and heal our strife-torn world.

From search for wealth and power
and scorn of truth and right,
from trust in bombs that shower
destruction through the night,
from pride of race and station
and blindness to your way,
deliver every nation,
eternal God, we pray.

Lord, strengthen all who labor
that we may find release
from fear of rattling saber,
from dread of war's increase;
when hope and courage falter,
your still small voice be heard;
with faith that none can alter,
uphold us by your word.

Keep bright in us the vision
of days when war shall cease,
when hatred and division
give way to love and peace,
till dawns the morning glorious
when Christ alone shall reign
and he shall rule victorious
o'er all the world's domain.
