Father in Heaven
Father in Heaven, in thy love abounding,
Hear these thy children thru the world resounding,
Loud in thy praises. Thanks for peace abiding,
Filled be our hearts with peace beyond comparing,
Peace in thy world, and joy to hearts despairing.
Firm is our trust in thee for peace enduring,
God of our fathers, strengthen ev’ry nation
In thy great peace, where only is salvation.
So may the world its future spread before thee,
Thus to adore thee.
