84 - God the Omnipotent

God the Omnipotent!
King who ordainest
Great winds Thy clarions,
The lightings Thy sword;
Show forth Thy pity on high where Thou reignest
Give to us peace,
O most merciful Lord.
God the all merciful!
Earth hath forsaken
Thy precepts holy, and slighted Thy word;
Bid not Thy wrath in its terrors awaken;
Give to us peace,
O most merciful Lord
God the all righteous One!
Man hath defied Thee;
Yet to eternity standeth Thy word;
Falsehood and wrong shall not tarry beside Thee;
Prosper the right,
O most merciful Lord.
So shall we render Thee thankful devotion,
For Thy deliverance from peril and sword,
Singing in chorus from ocean to ocean,
“Thine is the power and the glory,
O Lord.”
