Whatever Happened To

Whatever happened to love and peace on earth
Did we give up
And found something more of worth
Did we forget
And mindlessly gave new birth
Is that what happened to love and peace on earth

Whatever happened to this nation
Did we give up
And replaced the sensation
Did we forget
About the original creation
Is that what happened to this nation

Whatever happened to marriage
Did we give up
And found it a useless war to wage
Did we forget
And replaced holiness in this new day and age
Is that what happened to marriage

Whatever happened to you and me
Did we give up
And threw away the key
Did we forget
And left each other be
Is that what happened to you me

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
