Dear Father we come before you,
With deep concern in our hearts,
For all those that are suffering,
Here, and in far off parts.
We think of those who are afraid,
Those who are lost and alone,
Those who are caught up in conflict,
Who through war have no home?
We think of the children, Father,
Those that are sick and dying,
The emptiness in all their faces,
Bewildered, bemused and crying.
Father we ask you,
To instil into the minds of men,
To irradiate war and destruction,
And never to fight again.
Let us all pray for peace,
Together we will command,
A world of perfect harmony,
To spread throughout our land.
