God the Omnipotent King who ordainest




God, the omnipotent! King
Who ordainest
Great winds Thy clarions,
lightnings Thy sword;
Show forth Thy pity
on high where Thou reignest,
Give to us peace
in our time, O Lord.


God the all merciful!
Earth hath forsaken
Thy ways of blessedness,
slighted Thy Word;
Bid not Thy wrath
in its terrors awaken;
Give to us peace
in our time, O Lord.


God the all righteous One!
Man hath defied Thee;
Yet to eternity standeth Thy Word,
Falsehood and wrong
shall not tarry beside Thee;
Give to us peace
in our time, O Lord.


God the all wise!
By the fire of Thy chastening,
Earth shall to freedom
and truth be restored;
Through the thick darkness
Thy kingdom is hastening;
Thou wilt give peace
in Thy time, O Lord.


So shall Thy children,
with thankful devotion,
Praise Him Who saved them
from peril and sword,
Singing in chorus
from ocean to ocean,
Peace to the nations,
and praise to the Lord.


---Alternative verses---


God the Omnipotent!
King who ordainest
thunder thy clarion,
the lightning thy sword;
show forth thy pity on high
where thou reignest:
give to us peace
in our time, O Lord.


God the All-provident!
earth by thy chastening
yet shall to freedom
and truth be restored;
through the thick darkness
thy kingdom is hastening:
thou wilt give peace
in our time, O Lord.
