220. 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 violent ways help us contain;
Give peace, O God, give peace again!

2 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.

3 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!
