The world is torn apart
Peace is so evasive
Lost is hope; love is
Astray in this maddened world
A world of ruthlessness and inequity
A world of forgotten peace and unity.
A world needs a heart
that throbs for peace
a heart that beats
not of hatred but of love divine
a mind that thinks nothing
but goodwill to mankind.
Why don't we give this world a chance?
A chance for us to live with peace
Peace that would give every child
A breathes of freedom without distress
Freedom to let them taste
a life of full of dreams and space.
We cry for a peaceful world
the world cries for our love untold.
