How long O Lord his brother's blood




How long, O Lord, his brotherís blood
Shall man in battle spill!
How long that mandate be withstood,
Which cries "Thou shalt not kill?"


How long shall glory still be found
In scenes of cruel strife,
Where misery walks, a giant crowned,
Crushing the flowers of life?


O, hush, great God! the sounds of war,
And make Thy children feel
That he, with Thee, is noblest far,
Who toils for human wea1;ó


And though forgotten, he alone
Can be a Christian true
Who would his foes as brethren own,
And still their good pursue.
