Emily Huntington Miller
Hymn of Peace

Breath of the Lord that moved of old
Through chaos of the quickening earth,
Till the wide heavens in light unrolled,
And sun and star and flower had birth,

Breathe on this warring world of men,
To bid its strife and tumult cease;
Till stars of morning sing again,
With Sons of God, the Song of Peace.

Still on the waters broods Thy power;
Through all our discords echo still
That music of that later hour,
“Peace on the Earth! in Heaven goodwill!”

Teach Thou our hearts that nobler song
Of nobler souls by truth set free,
Till the full chorus, sweet and strong,
From Thy glad earth goes up to Thee.
