21. O God of truth, O Lord of might

1 O God of truth, O Lord of might,
you order time and change aright,
you send the early morning ray,
and light the glow of perfect day:

2 Quench now on earth the flames of strife;
from passion's heat preserve our life;
and while you keep our body whole,
pour healing peace upon our soul.
