The power, the glory, the quiet peace
The Spirit of God bestows;
Let courage in Christ and faith increase,
The heart in hope repose.

Wars and rumors of wars arise,
The sword gives way to drones;
The world is full of wiles and lies,
And words, of sticks and stones.

In harm and danger, toil and heat,
Secure our souls for heav’n;
Until that day, put us on our feet,
To be light and salt and leav’n.
