A SONG and a POEM for PEACE
Let There Be Peace - a poem
Peace in the Four Corners that it should be
a promise, and real;
Peace in our nations that the specter should be
turned on its heel;
Peace in our cities that fear should abandon
our streets and walkways;
Peace in our schools that violence should be
routed, and always;
Peace in our churches that God’s children should be
Peace in our homes that our young ones should
cease in their trembling;
Peace in our hearts that our tempers should be
cancelled and curbed;
Peace in our words that the masses should be
studied, and stirred;
Peace in our creations that our galleries should be
Peace in our visions that Love, in our time,
should be born, and reborn;
Peace in our deeds that never a doubt should
awake, and arise;
Peace in our souls that it should be
mirrored in our eyes.
Let there be peace.

I've printed this following song before - yet plan on it often because I just love it and at the end of a long day of tiresome war drums it feels just right. Come back soon as I hope to put out some great music by video or URL - for peace and also for just plain FUN along with an URDU PEACE SONG or two - One similar to this one....
THIS IS MY SONG
sometimes called Poem for Peace and using tune Finlandia
This is my song, O God of all the nations,
A song of peace for lands afar and mine.
This is my home, the country where my heart is;
Here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine;
But other hearts in other lands are beating
With hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.
My country's skies are bluer than the ocean,
And sunlight beams on clover-leaf and pine.
But other lands have sunlight too and clover,
And skies are everywhere as blue as mine.
Oh, hear my song, O God of all the nations,
A song of peace for their land and for mine.
