Be peace on earth before the Prince of Peace!
Messiah comes! let furious discord cease.
Be peace on earth!
Disease and anguish feel His blest control,
And woe, no more, disturb the troubles soul!
May beams of gladness all our hearts illume,
And mercy brood above the distant gloom!
Be peace on earth before the Prince of Peace!
Messiah comes! let furious discord cease.
Be peace on earth!
