Subject(s): Peace


Hatred and greed and pride shall die,
Cannon and swords shall prostrate lie;
Warring shall end, the world shall cry—
For He shall speak peace.

Rivers shall nevermore run red,
Terror shall hide his bloody head,
Life shall no more for lust be shed—
For He shall speak peace.

They shall not strive in earth again,
Honor will come to dwell with men;
Children will bide in safety then—
For He shall speak peace.

Desolate plains, now bleak and cold,
Burst forth again in green and gold;
Birds of the trenches sing, as of old— For He shall speak peace.
