So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

120. Give Peace, O God

1 O God of love, O God of peace,
make wars throughout the world to cease;
the wrath of sinful humans restrain;
give peace, O God, give peace again.

2 Remember, Lord, your works of old,
the wonders that our forebears 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 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;
O bind us in that heav'nly chain,
give peace, O God, give peace again.
