529. Lord of our life, and God of our salvation

1 Lord of our life, and God of our salvation,
star of our night, and hope of every nation:
hear and receive your church's supplication,
Lord God almighty!

2 See round your church the angry tides are swirling,
see how your foes their banners are unfurling;
Lord, while their darts envenomed they are hurling,
you can preserve us.

3 Lord, you can help when earthly armour fails us,
Lord, you can save when deadly sin assails us:
Lord, when at last that solemn trumpet hails us,
keep and protect us!

4 Grant us your help till foes are backward driven,
grant them your truth, that they may be forgiven;
grant peace on earth and, after we have striven,
peace in your heaven.
