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. A-men.
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. Topics: The Church The People of God; The Life In Christ Conflict and Victory Languages: English Tune Title: CLOISTERS
