Oh hear our fervent prayer for peace,
for calm, when winds of warring ceases;
when pilgrims purged by a sacred fire make
goals of peace their true desire.
The path is narrow; fear despair and pride
will haunt the shadows there.
As motives curse or praise the light,
reject the wrong, reflect the right.
We pray for peace through earth's domain,
the dragon, Hunger, stalked and slain.
We pray for peace where love is crowned,
the cures for human suffering found.
With faith and hope an charity
as stepping stones to harmony,
Almighty God, reward our quest.
May dreams and deed of peace be blessed.
Unified by a common stand,
let pilgrims take their neighbor's hand;
and work together peacefully,
as crumbling walls set people free!
