There is peace in this land Dark hands touch light hands A young face looks into an old one All people are working together For a goal to be revealed Stranger & stranger walk together Foe & foe are now friends All people are helping each other Making beginnings meet ends One heart understands the other One soul reaches out to another Young ones are feeding the elders With plate, fork, spoon & bowl. A rich man is helping a poor man A convict is dancing with a child, People put aside their differences & proclaim a triumphant hope Now, there is peace in this land
