Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1. Dear Father, whom we cannot see,
We know that Thou art near;
With longing hearts we turn to Thee,
And ask that Thou wilt set us free
From war and hate and fear.

2. Dear Father, King of love and peace,
We know that Thou art strong;
Make conflicts everywhere to cease,
Let mercy everywhere increase,
And kindness conquer wrong.

3. Dear Father, Lord of sea and land,
We know that Thou art wise;
O make the nations understand
That only by Thy guiding hand
Can lasting peace arise.
