Right now fear, doubt, anxiety, tension, and disharmony
Are reigning supreme.
But there will come a time when this world of ours
Will be flooded with peace.
Who is going to bring about this radical change?
It will be you; you and your sisters and brothers.
You and your oneness – heart will spread peace
Throughout the length and breadth of the world
God has infinite children,
But the name of His fondest child
Peace we achieve
When we do not expect anything
From the world,
But only give, give, and give
What we have and what we are.
So that I can inundate
My entire being
With the omnipotent power of peace.
Slowly and steadily you have to silence your mind
So that the peace – dove can nest in it.
O dreamers of peace, come.
Let us walk together.
O lovers of peace, come.
Let us run together.
O servers of peace, come.
Let us grow together.
