Hymn #738: God the omnipotent

Change to large font

1. God the omnipotent sovereign, ordaining
great winds your clarions and lightnings your sword,
show forth your mercy: alone you are reigning.
Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.

2. God the all merciful, earth has forsaken
meekness and mercy and slighted your word;
bid not your wrath in its terrors awaken.
Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.

3. God the allrighteous, we have defied you;
yet to eternity firm stands your word;
falsehood and wrong shall not stand long beside you.
Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.

4. God the allwise, by the fire of your chastening
earth shall to freedom and truth be restored.
Through the thick darkness your Kingdom is hastening.
You will give peace in your time, O Lord.

5. So shall your children, with thankful devotion,
praise God who saved them from peril and sword,
singing in chorus, from ocean to ocean,
peace to the nations and praise to the Lord.
