O Day of Peace That Dimly Shines

"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.
Then shall the wolf dwell with the lamb,
never 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
and all the earth shall know the Lord."
Thank you Pastor Laura
