There was a time, when it was taught,

By everyone, who was blood bought,

That Jesus was the Prince of Peace,

Incredibly those days have ceased.


No more is war considered sin,

Oh frightful days we’re living in,

A call for war, by those who feign,

To follow God, in Jesus name.


Is it because the screams and cries,

They do not hear when someone dies,

Or see the child, forever maimed,

I fear their hands with blood are stained.


Atoning blood, Christ crucified,

A substitute, ‘twas Him who died,

For mankind’s sin, redeeming love,

The Spirit, gentle, as a dove.


Saviour, Helper, God of healing,

Bread of life, His comfort bringing,

Binder of the broken hearted,

For this truth, were many martyred.


Consuming love, God of mercy,

Living waters, for the thirsty,

‘Tis Jesus Word, by Him was sown,

Love others as you love your own.
