In conflict, turmoil, war, and strife,
we see our loved ones fall.
We seek for justice, hope for life,
and pray for peace for all.
We weep for everyone who dies
as endless wars increase
and in their mem'ry realize
that we must work for peace.
Of all the lives cut short by strife,
we think of you, Lord Christ,
in awe recalling that your life
for us was sacrificed.
