               (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. God, Lord of Sabaoth, Thou who ordainest
        Thunder Thy clarion and lightning Thy sword,
        Show forth Thy pity on high where Thou reignest;
        Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.

        2. God, the omnipotent, mighty Avenger,
        Watching invisible, judging unheard;
        Save us in mercy, oh, save us from danger;
        Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.

        3. God, the All-merciful, earth hath forsaken
        Thy ways all holy and slighted Thy Word;
        Let not Thy wrath in its terror awaken;
        Give to us pardon and peace, O Lord.

        4. So shall Thy people, with thankful devotion,
        Praise Him who saved them from peril and sword,
        Singing in chorus, from ocean to ocean,
        Peace to the nations and praise to the Lord.
