1.  Dear Father, whom we cannot see,

We know that Thou are near;

With longing hearts we turn to Thee,

And ask that Thou wilt set us free

From war and hate and fear.

2.  Dear Father, King of love and peace,

We know that Thou art strong;

Make conflicts everywhere to cease,

Let mercy everywhere increase,

And kindness conquer wrong.

3.  Dear Father, Lord of sea and land,

We know that Thou art wise;

O make the nations understood

That only by Thy guiding hand

Can lasting peace arise.
