PEACE

by Wendy Hardaker

Our Father up in heaven
Hear this frequent prayer
May the people of all nations
Be united in Your care

For earth's peace and man's salvation
Can come only by Your grace
And not with bombs and missiles
And our quest for outer space

For until all men recognize
That the "Battle is the Lords"
And peace cannot be won
With strategy and swords

Father in heaven stir
And wake our sleeping souls
Renew our faith and lift us up
And give us higher goals

And grant us heavenly guidance
As war threatens us again
For more than guided missiles
All the world needs is guided me
