Hymn – “God the Almighty One”

God the Almighty One

1.  God the almighty One! wisely ordaining Judgments unsearchable, famine and sword;  Over the tumult of war Thou art reigning:

Chorus:

Give to us peace in our time, O Lord! Amen.

2.  God the all merciful! earth hath forsaken Thy ways of blessedness, slighted Thy Word; Bid not Thy wrath in its terrors awaken:

Chorus.

3.  God the all righteous One!  man hath defied Thee; Yet to eternity standeth Thy Word;  Falsehood and wrong shall not tarry beside Thee:

Chorus.

Give us peace in our time, O Lord!  Amen.
