Give peace in these our Days
Give peace in these our days, O Lord,
Great dangers are now at hand;
Thine enemies with one accord
Christís Name in every land
Seek to deface, root out and rase,
Thy true right worship indeed.
Be Thou the Stay, O Lord, we Thee pray.
Thou helpest alone in all need.
Give us that peace that we do lack,
Through misbelief, and in ill life.
Thy Word to offer Thou dost not slack,
Which we unkindly gainstrive.
With fire and sword, this healthful Word
Some persecute and oppress.
Some with the mouth confess the truth
Without sincere godliness.
Give peace and us Thy sprite down send
With grief and repentance true;
Do piece our hearts our lives to amend,
And by faith Christ renew;
That fear and dread, war and bloodshed,
Through Thy sweet mercy and grace,
May from us slide, Thy truth abide,
And shine in every place.
