Published in 4 hymnals
1 Lord Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace,
True God and Man art Thou!
Our mighty help in life and death,
O hear and help us now!
'Tis through Thy name alone we claim
The mercy of Thy Father.
2 The times are sore and perilous
With heavy woes and wars,
Whence no man can deliver us;
But do Thou plead our cause,
That God may lay His wrath away,
No deal with us in anger.
3 We have deserved, and patiently
Would bear, whate'er Thou wilt;
But grace is mightier far with Thee,
Than all our sin and guilt;
Forgive us then, dear Lord, again;
Thy love is ever faithful.
