Lord, I thank You - praise You this day,
Asking You to lead us in Your Way.
Help us to receive it as a special gift.
Love that is hoarded, molds at last,
Maybe we'll learn this truth some day.
That the only things we can keep,
Are things we willingly give away.
You can have your God of war,
Or choose your enemy near or far.
I claim a God of love and peace,
He prays to men for war to cease.
