Author: Philip Pusey Hymnal: Common Service Book of the Lutheran Church #208 (1917) Meter: 126.96.36.199 Hymnal Title: Common Service Book of the Lutheran Church Lyrics: 1 Lord of our life, and God of our salvation,
Star of our night, and Hope of every nation,
Hear and receive Thy Church's supplication,
Lord God Almighty.
2 See round Thine ark the hungry billows curling,
See how Thy foes their banners are unfurling;
Lord, while their darts envenomed they are hurling,
Thou canst preserve us.
3 Lord, Thou canst help when earthly armor faileth,
Lord, Thou canst save when deadly sin assaileth,
Lord, o'er Thy Rock nor death nor hell prevaileth;
Grant us Thy peace, Lord.
4 Peace in our hearts, our evil thoughts assuaging,
Peace in Thy Church, where brothers are engaging,
Peace when the world its busy war is waging;
Calm Thy foes' raging.
5 Grant us Thy help till backward they are driven;
Grant them Thy truth, that they may be forgiven;
Grant peace on earth, and, after we have striven,
Peace in Thy heaven.
Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: CLOISTERS
Lord of our life, and God of our salvation
