The Early Christian Attitude To War  (1919) 
by Cecil John Cadoux

O glorious Will of God, unfold
The splendour of Thy Way,
And all shall love as they behold
And loving shall obey,
Consumed each meaner care and claim
In the new passion's holy flame.
O speed the hours when o'er the world
The vision's fire shall run;
Night from his ancient throne is hurled,
Uprisen is Christ the Sun;
Through human wills by Thee controlled,
Spreads o'er the earth the Age of Gold.

"Lord, to whom shall we go?
Thou hast the words of eternal life."
