Song of Peace (Isaiah 2:2-5)
In the days to come *
the mountain of the house of the Lord
shall tower as the highest of mountains.*
and be raised above the hills.
There shall all the nations flow; *
many peoples shall come and say,
"Let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,*
to the house of the God of Jacob,
that he may teach us his ways *
that we may walk in his paths.
For the law shall go out from Zion, *
from Jerusalem the word of the Lord,
He shall judge between many nations *
and decide for many peoples.
They shall beat their swords into ploughshares, *
their spears into pruning knives.
nation shall not lift sword against nation; *
they shall never train for war again.
O people of Jacob, come, *
let us walk in the light of the Lord.
Hymn 528: O God, Our Help in Ages Past
The Collect for Peace
O God, it is your will to hold both heaven and earth in a single peace. Let the desire of your great love shine on the waste of our wraths and sorrows, and give peace to your Church, peace among nations, peace in our homes, and peace in our hearts; through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

An Act of Remembrance
They shall grow not old,
as we who are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun,
and in the morning we will remember them.
