578. O God of love, O King of peace

1 O God of love, O King of peace,
make wars throughout the world to cease;
the wrath of nations now restrain,
give peace, O God, give peace again!

2 Remember, Lord, thy works of old,
the wonders that thy people told;
remember not our sin's dark stain,
give peace, O God, give peace again!

3 Whom shall we trust but thee, O Lord?
Where rest but on thy faithful word?
None ever called on thee in vain,
give peace, O God, give peace again!
