22 And Hilkiah, and they that the king had appointed, went to Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvath, the son of Hasrah, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college:) and they spake to her to that effect. 23 And she answered them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Tell ye the man that sent you to me, 24 Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the curses that are written in the book which they have read before the king of Judah: 25 Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be poured out upon this place, and shall not be quenched. 26 And as for the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the LORD, so shall ye say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel concerning the words which thou hast heard; 27 Because thine heart was tender, and thou didst humble thyself before God, when thou heardest his words against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, and humbledst thyself before me, and didst rend thy clothes, and weep before me; I have even heard thee also, saith the LORD. 28 Behold, I will gather thee to thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered to thy grave in peace, neither shall thine eyes see all the evil that I will bring upon this place, and upon the inhabitants of the same. So they brought the king word again.(KJV)

1. Lord of our life and God of our salvation. 
Star of our night and Hope of every nation, 
Hear and receive Thy Church’s supplication, 
Lord God Almighty. 

2. See round Thine ark the hungry billows curling; 
See how thy foes their banners are unfurling. 
Lord, while their darts envenomed they are hurling, 
Thou canst preserve us. 

3. Lord, Thou canst help when earthly armor faileth; 
Lord, Thou canst save when deadly sin assaileth; 
Lord, o’er Thy Church nor death nor hell prevaileth; 
Grant us Thy peace, Lord: 

4. Peace in our hearts, our evil thoughts assuaging; 
Peace in Thy Church where brothers are engaging; 
Peace when the world its busy war is waging. 
Calm Thy foes’ raging. 

5. Grant us Thy help till backward they are driven; 
Grant them Thy truth that they may be forgiven; 
Grant peace on earth or, after we have striven, 
Peace in Thy heaven.
