God Grant Us Peace, a hymn

God grant us peace where war is never-ending
And give us hope when all ‘round is despair.
For though it seems as if the world is broken
And mem’ry gives the only veil of care,
You once again remind us of your mercy
And call us to repentant humble prayer.

Thy will be done on earth as in Heaven.
Forgive our debts, and help us to forgive.
Give us this day our daily bread and spur us
To share that bread so all may truly live.
May others see your image deep within us
And may we see your face when e’er we give.

O God of peace, division overwhelms us
And violence points us towards an angry place.
Instead of using anger as a weapon
You turn the unjust table on its face.
Remind us still, that in the resurrection,
No one can steal the vict’ry of your grace.
