Author: P. Pusey; Lowenstern Hymnal: The Church Hymnal #384 (1920) Hymnal Title: The Church Hymnal Lyrics: 1 Lord of our life, and God of our salvation,
Star of our night, and hope of ev'ry 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.
3 Lord, Thou canst help when earthly armour 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. Topics: General Languages: English Tune Title: CLOISTERS
