He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; He breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; He burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.@Psalm 46:9–10

William Wrangham (1784–1832).

The Lord in Zion ever reigns,
And o’er her holds His guardian hand;
Her worship and her laws maintains,
Which, like Himself, unmoved shall stand.

O come, behold what He has done
Whom we delight to call our Lord;
The victories which His arm has won;
And faithfully His deeds record.

He maketh war on earth to cease;
He breaks the bow, He cuts the dart,
The chariot burns; and sheds His peace
O’er every nation, every heart.

Be still, and hear the Lord proclaim—
I will above the heathen rise;
O’er all the earth exalt My name,
And spread My triumphs through the skies.
