1 Let there be light, Lord God of hosts,
Let there be wisdom on the earth!
Let broad humanity have birth;
Let there be deeds instead of boasts.
2 Within our passioned hearts instill
The calm that endeth strain and strife;
Make us Thy ministers of life;
Purge us from lusts that curse and kill.
3 Give us the peace of vision clear
To see our brothers' good our own,
To joy and suffer not alone -
The love that casteth out all fear!
4 Let woe and waste of warfare cease,
That useful labor yet may build
Its homes with love and laughter filled;
God, give Thy wayward children peace!
