Today's hymn, "Lord of Our Life" (#659), is from the "Lutheran Service Book" (c) 2006 Concordia Publishing House.
Lord of our life and God of our salvation, Star of our night and hope of ev'ry nation:
Hear and receive Your Church's supplication, Lord God Almighty.
See round Your ark the hungry billows curling; See how Your foes their banners are unfurling
And with great spite their fiery darts are hurling, O Lord, preserve us.
Lord, be our light when worldly darkness veils us; Lord, be our shield when earthly armor fails us;
And in the day when hell itself assails us, Grant us Your peace, Lord:
Peace in our hearts, where sinful thoughts are raging, Peace in Your Church, our troubled souls assuaging,
Peace when the world its endless war is waging, Peace in Your heaven.
Soli Deo Gloria
