God of Peace

Lord of life and Lord of nations.
Giving peace, you make us one:
Heart of flesh for heart of stone.
Break the walls of all divisions.
Your kingdom come, with this its sign:
Our song this prayer let peace now reign.

Lengths of love beyond all measure.
Heights of love which now do call.
Breadth of love as room for all.
Depths of love where hides the treasure:
Through Christ, our Way, we find true peace.
A world made whole in God's embrace.

Visions new and ancient dreaming
See the love beyond all death:
New the heavens, new the earth:
Promise of the kingdom coming.
Through Christ the wounds of all this world
In God's own peace will then be healed.
