He shutteth his eyes to devise perverse things;
moving his lips, he bringeth evil to pass.

God the Omnipotent
God the Omnipotent! King, who ordainest Thunder Thy clarion, the lightning Thy sword; Show forth Thy pity on high where Thou reignest; Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.
God the All-merciful! earth hath forsaken Meekness and mercy, and slighted Thy word; Let not Thy wrath in its terrors awaken; Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.
God the All-righteous One! man hath defied Thee; Yet to eternity stunted Thy word; Falsehood and wrong shall not tarry beside Thee; Give to us peace in our time, O Lord.
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. Amen.
