For Peace

Almighty foundation of all that is harmonious, lead us through this passing strife. On battlefields of devastation, strengthen our resolve to serve the anguished.  Despite gruesome carnage, guide us to focus on cohesion; for in calmness we find strength.  When facing pitiless depravity, transform us with stillness: move us to right action.  And at the front of terror and confusion, raise our theme of harmony approaching, for we shall rise upon the call of reconciliation, victorious in ageless peace.
