Til Wars on Earth Shall End

A determined hope for a new year:

‘Til Wars on Earth Shall End

by Ken Medema

Let truth and mercy find here a joyful meeting place

And here let peace and justice be joined in warm embrace

And in this congregation let strangers now be friends

To do the gospel's bidding til wars on earth shall end

Let truth's bright flame be blazing in all the darkest hours

Confronting schemes of darkness exposing evil's powers

Let mercy's gentle manner so willing to forgive

Fill warring hearts with longing til in truth's light we live

So now let peace and justice be never far apart

But flowing like a river for every thirsty heart

These two shall be united a mighty moving stream

Upon whose banks we gather to work and pray and dream
