498. 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 heavenly chain.
Give peace, O God, give peace again.
