Lord God, we lift to Thee
A world hurt sore.
Look down, and let it be
Wounded no more!

Lord, when this year is done
That wakes to day
Many shall pray to Thee
Who do not pray;

Let all lips comfort them,
All hearts be kind,
They who this year shall leave
Their joys behind:

Give them Thy comforting,
Help them to know
That, though their hopes are gone,
Thou dost not go;

They who shall give for Thee
Lover and son,
Show them Thy world set free,
Thy battles done!

Lord God, we lift to Thee
A world in pain,
Look down and let it be
Made whole again!
