One World

O for a world where there is peace.
O for a world where we are one.

A world: where I can be myself.
A world: where I can grow old.
A world: where I am free to love and add love to the world.
A world: where teachers are revered.
A world: where laughter is heard.
A world: where children all are safe and sleep in loving arms.
A world: where we can trust our leaders.
A world: where hunger is fed.
A world: where we break down the walls that threaten to divide.

Let peace fill our hearts, our nation and our world.
So we may dream together, pray together, work together
to build one world with room enough for all.
