lyrics

Tune: Amazing Grace (John Newton)
Amazing peace
How sweet the sound
Of peace throughout the world
Let war be lost and peace be found
Let all our hearts be one.
When words of war are all we hear
Let quiet words of peace
Prevail at last and far and near
And soldiers find release

When all the world
Shall be as one
And fill our hearts with love
The bloody eagle be transformed
Into a turtle dove.
So let's unite
And be resolved
That peace shall be our aim
And every problem shall be solved
And peace forever reign
