131. [Heralds of Christ, who bear the King's command]

A. 3. Lord, give us strength the road to build,
to see the promised day fulfilled,
War shall be no more and strife shall cease
upon the highway of Peace.

B. 4. Refresh thy people on their way.
Lead us to never-ending day;
Fill our lives with love and grace divine,
Glory and praise be ever Thine.
