40. God the Omnipotent

1 God the Omnipotent! King who ordainest
Thunder thy clarion, the lightning thy sword,
Show forth thy pity on high where thou reignest:
Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.

2 God the All-merciful! earth hath forsaken
Thy way all holy,, and slighted thy word;
Bid not thy wrath in its terrors awaken:
Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.

3 God, the all-righteous One! man hath defied thee;
Yet to eternity standeth thy word;
Falsehood and wrong shall not tarry beside thee;
Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.

4 God the All-proyident! earth by thy chastening
Yet shall to freedom and truth be restored;
Through the thick darkness thy Kingdom is hastening;
Thou wilt give peace in thy time, O Lord.
