connexions: Hymn of the day

Original post at http://theconnexion.net/wp/?p=14260


Our earth we now lament to see With floods of wickedness overflowed, With violence, wrong, and cruelty, one wide-extended field of blood, where men like fiends each other tear, In all the hellish rage of war.

Christ, from whom all blessings flow, Perfecting the saints below, Hear us, who Thy nature share, Who Thy mystic body are. Join us, in one spirit join, Let us still receive of Thine; Still for more on Thee we call, Thou Who fillest all in all. Move and actuate and guide, Diverse gifts to each divide; Placed according to Thy will, Let us all our work [...]
