1 Send down your truth, O God;
Too long the shadows frown!
Too long the darkened way we’ve trod:
Your truth, O Lord, send down.
2 Send down your Spirit free,
Till wilderness and town
One temple for your worship be:
Your Spirit, O send down.
3 Send down your love, your life,
Our lesser lives to crown,
And cleanse them of their hate and strife:
Your living love send down.
4 Send down your peace, O Lord,
Earth’s bitter voices drown
In one deep ocean of accord:
Your peace, O God, send down.
