1 We come to you, O Lord our God,
bringing our thanks for mercies past:
for battles done and blessings shared,
for those who served and put self last.
And now we ask forgiveness, Lord,
for sins which stain our nation's soul.
Grant us your pardon and your peace.
Come, heal our land and make us whole.

2 Help us to guard the gift of peace,
hope of the brave who fought and died.  
May neighbours live in harmony   
and races flourish side by side.
Peace on the earth, in homes and hearts;
let battles cease and barriers fall.
Peace with our God through Jesus Christ,
the Prince of Peace and Lord of all.
