Give me words of hope and peace,
Not words that make life to cease.
Give me words that add life to lives,
Not death to life, or pain to cries.
Give me words that turn into reality,
Not of violence today but tomorrows prosperity.
Take that lessness out of 'hope',
And add that 'full' to fill the hope.
Give me those snatched seeds of peace,
Which I can grow to trees, giving fresh lease.
Give me words that bring a tear,
Not of pain but of joy to bear.
