PEACE PRAYED FOR




On us oppressed beneath thy stroke,
Now overwhelmed with guilt and shame,
Deign, mighty God, once more to look;
The same thy power, thy grace the same.


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


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


Let hostile troops drop from their hands
The useless sword, the glittering spear;
And join in friendship's sacred bands,
Nor one dissentient voice be there.


Thus save, O Lord, a sinking land;
Millions of tongues shall then adore,
Resound the honors of thy name,
And spread thy praise from shore to shore.
