O Transformer of Weapons, Come
Isaiah 2:4b …they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.
O Transformer of Weapons, Come~
Help us to create a world in which
races relate to
rather than retaliate against each other,
rather than denigrate each other,
rather than fight each other.
May our resources be used to nourish and build
rather than to starve and break down.
Transform our suspicions and mistrust
into openness and understanding,
in the hope of creating a world
which no longer learns war.
