PRAYER FOR PEACE




On Britain long a favoured isle,
But now o’erwhelmed with sin and shame,
Deign, mighty God, once more to smile;
The same thy power, thy grace the same.


Let peace descend with balmy wing,
And all its blessings round her shed;
Her liberties be well secured,
And commerce raise its fainting head.


Let the loud cannon cease to roar,
The warlike trump no longer sound;
The din of arms be head no more,
Nor human blood pollute the ground.


Let hostile armies from their hands,
Cast down the sword and cruel spear;
Unite in friendship’s sacred bands,
Nor one discordant voice be there.


Thus save, oh Lord, a guilty land;
Millions of tongues shall then adore,
The honour of thy name extend,
From sea to sea, from shore to shore.
