star of our night, and hope of ev'ry nation,
hear and receive thy Church's supplication,
Lord God almighty.
2 Lord, thou canst help when earthly armor faith,
Lord, thou canst save when deadly sin assaileth;
Christ, o'er thy rock nor death nor hell prevaileth;
grant us thy peace, Lord.
3 Peace in our hearts, our evil thoughts assuaging;
peace in thy church, where people are engaging;
peace, when the world its busy war is waging;
calm all our raging.
4 Grant us thy grace through trial and temptation,
grant us thy truth, thy promise of salvation,
grant us thy peace in every heart and nations,
and in thy heaven.
