Speak of Peace, Speak of Love

by Franklyn Schaefer © 2008


I watch the world and want to cry.
Itís all gone wrong, someone tell me why.

Who said thereís glory found in war?
Who taught us brothers to ignore?

      

Canít we join forces to create,

A world which leaves no room for hate?
Canít there be faith without a creed?
And who said love cannot be free?

 

My questions rise to the sky
The stars above can testify.
I sit for hours in the night
To look for answers that feel right.


Speak of peace, speak of love,

Brother moon, from above!
Say a prayer, through the night

That our world will be alright.

      


       

My questions rise to the sky
The stars above can testify
I watch for shooting stars and wait

To make a wish and change our fate!

      

Speak of peace, speak of love,

Brother moon, from above!
Say a prayer, through the night

That our world will be alright.

I wish that good will right the wrong

I wish one day weíll get along.

That our minds be opened wide
That love and kindness be our guide!
