When war on earth suspended
His wild career of woes,
The Prince of Peace descended,
A guiltier strife to close;
Vain battles worms were waging—
With their creator, God;
He came, and wrath assuaging,
Made peace with his own blood.

The storm that flamed and lowered
Was calm at His command;
The rod of Justice flowered,
Like Aaron’s, in His hand:
That scepter, love revealing,
Rebels, approach and kiss;
Its leaves are for your healing,
Its fruits—immortal bliss.
