Theme: Church

1.  O day of peace that dimly shines
    Through all our hopes and prayers and dreams,
    Guide us to justice, truth, and love,
    Delivered from our selfish schemes.
    May swords of hate fall from our hands,
    Our hearts from envy find release,
    Till by God's grace our warring world
    Shall see Christ's promised reign of peace.

2.  Then shall the wolf dwell with the lamb,
    Nor shall the fierce devour the small;
    As beasts and cattle calmly graze,
    A little child shall lead them all.
    Then enemies shall learn to love,
    All creatures find their true accord;
    The hope of peace shall be fulfilled,
    For all the earth shall know the Lord.
