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~
Grant us hope in your vision
of a transformed world,
a world where
different races relate to
rather than retaliate against each other,
distinct religions respect
rather than denigrate each other,
diverse nations feed
rather than fight each other.
Use our resources to nourish and build
rather than to starve and break down,
and with us create the world we long for,
a world which no longer learns war.
