1. Remember, Lord, Thy works of old,
The wonders that our fathers told;
Remember not our sin's dark stain;

2. Whom shall we trust but Thee, O Lord?
Where rest but on Thy faithful Word?
None ever called on Thee in vain;
Give peace, O God, give peace again.

3. Where saints and angels dwell above,
All hearts are knit in holy love;
O bind us in that heav'nly chain,
Give peace, O God, give peace again.
