"God mend thine every flaw"


May truth and freedom come to every nation
May peace abound where strife has raged so long;
That each may seek to love and build together,
A world united, righting every wrong.
A world united in its love for freedom,
Proclaiming peace together in one song.

The original hymn (sung to the tune Finlandia) was written by Lloyd Stone but that had only two verses. This added verse is by the theologian Georgia Harkness.
