Gentle Peace, from heaven descended,
We would live beneath Thy law;
Thou hast home and life befriended,
Born of nobler deeds than war.
Thou hast thrown a smile of beauty
O'er the meadow, hill, and grove;
Thou hast quickened us to duty,
Thou hast warmed our hearts to love.
Stay Thou with us, still replenish
Fields with fruit, ourselves with love;
Discord and dissension banish,
Peaceful Spirit from above.
