Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

519. O God of Love, O King of Peace

1 O God of love, O King of peace,
Make wars throughout the world to cease;
Our greed and sinful wrath restrain --
Give peace, O God, give peace again.

2 Remember, Lord, your works of old,
The wonders that our elders told;
Remember not our sins' dark stain --
Give peace, O God, give peace again.

3 Whom shall we trust but you, O Lord?
Where rest but on your faithful Word?
None ever called on you in vain --
Give peace, O God, give peace again.

4 Where saints and angels dwell above,
All hearts are knit in holy love;
Oh, bind us in that heav'nly chain --
Give peace, O God, give peace again.
