1. O God of all salvation

 In every darkest hour,

Look down at your creation

 With pity and with power.

In all the pain we’re seeing,

 For stranger as for friend,

We’ll cling with all our being

 To love that cannot end.

2. O God, your loving passion

 Is deeper than our pain,

Look down, and in compassion

 Bring us to life again.

When we are found despairing,

 When all seems lost to sin,

We’ll hear your voice declaring

 That love alone will win.

3. O God, when hate grows stronger,

 With fear to pave its way,

The cry, ‘Lord, how much longer?’

 With broken hearts we pray.

In all that is dismaying

 In humankind’s freewill,

We’ll join our voices, praying

 That love will triumph still.

4. O God, whose love will never

 Be silenced, stalled or stilled,

Set us to work wherever

 There’re bridges to rebuild.

We’ll take our life’s vocation

 To make, like heav’n above,

In this and every nation

 A kingdom built on love.
