Let's Give Peace A Chance


Can peace be attained in a war-torn world
Or is his a dream never to be fulfilled
Could war be replaced as love unfolds
Is there a special secret yet to reveal

I say we must all give peace a chance
No matter what obstacles lie in the way
For even Christ when pierced by the lance
Could still forgive mankind anyway

We must all walk with our brother hand in hand
It does not matter though he be white, red or black
Be forever ready to solve conflicts when we can
Seek peace in the future, forgive and not look back

Ghandi taught love and peace and so did Martin Luther King
Wars still came since hearts refused to reflect and listen
And in the past another tried and they crucified him
So you must show love and give peace a chance to glisten

And whether you are Catholic, Protestant or Jew
Give peace a chance, over and over, again and again
Let God take reign in your heart, making all things new
Thereby making all races, colors and creeds your friend

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
