"Blessed are the peacemakers"

Blessed are ye that make for peace,The eternal promise stands.Hear, O ye nations of the earth,And courage take, O landsThat seek the path of tyrannyAnd grasping greed to stay;That greatly strive to have men walkIn wisdom's warless way!Upheld your hands are by the lawOf Him who made all things.Then falter not in purpose pure,Though mad ambition flingsIts battle front from shore to shoreIn war's most cruel din;Though godless creeds and theoriesOf might in matter winTheir momentary victories,Let not your efforts cease.Blessed indeed of God and menAre they that make for peace.Mind speaks and none can stay His hand,Or make His promise vain.Omnipotence alone hath power,And Love supreme doth reign.
