Love is the only hope for peace on earth.
Love isn't quick to take offense at other nations,
but listens and decides with careful patience.
Love is realistic, love isn't blind.
Love is determined, caring and kind.
Spirit of Jesus, friend and forgiver,
near us forever, fill us with love.
Love is the only hope for peace at home.
Love doesn't need to sneer and shout at friends and strangers,
but gladly lets them be, and calls them neighbors:
Love is the only hope for peace of mind.
Nothing that's going on today or in the future
can tear us from the love of Christ our Savior.
