- Page 949: Hymns listed under Peace
- #456: "For Courage to Do Justice"
- #107: "La Palabara Del Señor Es Recta" (Righteous and Just Is the Word of the Lord)
From self–righteousness that will not compromise,
and from selfishness that gains by the oppression of others,
O Lord, deliver us.1
From the lust for money or power that drives to kill, R
From trusting in the weapons of war, and mistrusting the councils of peace, R
From hearing, believing, and speaking lies about other nations, R
From suspicions and fears that stand in the way of reconciliation, R
From words and deeds that encourage discord, prejudice, and hatred;
from everything that prevents us from fulfilling your promise of peace, R
