Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Discord, dire sister of the slaughtering power,
Small at her birth but rising every hour,
While scarce the skies her horrid head can bound,
She stalks on earth and shakes the world around.
But lovely Peace, in angel's form
Descending, quells the rising storm.
Soft ease and sweet content shall reign,
And Discord never rise again.
