"The Day of Peace"

words and music © 2003 by Kim Saunders and Bob Reid

In the morning on the Day of Peace
I awake to birds singing
Not a single gun shot is heard
Not one war-plane winging
I am able to walk outside and
Lift my face to the sun
Walking to the house of my friend
Today we can play, explore and run

On the Day of Peace
Let's come together
I want the Day of Peace
To last forever
On the Day of Peace
No longer divided
On the Day of Peace
The world united

In the afternoon of the "Day of Peace"
We rest in fields of flowers
In these fields that once burned with danger and fear
We look at the sky for hours
We are filled with a new found hope
That the fighting will end
Rebuilding our lives from the ruins
A helping hand we all will lend

On the Day of Peace
Let's come together
I want the Day of Peace
To last forever
On the Day of Peace
No longer divided
On the Day of Peace
The world united

 


United in Hope
United in Love
United in Strength
Nations together!
United in Love
United in Hope
Creating Peace forever

If we must disagree
let us use our voices to
find a way, find a way through, find away through

Night falls on the Day of Peace
Everyone dreaming
Not one person was hurt today
There was laughter, embracing and singing
The Earth is quiet except for the sound of crickets and flowing water
The Moon watches over a peaceful world
Safe for our sons and our daughters

On the Day of Peace
Let's come together
I want the Day of Peace
To last forever
On the Day of Peace
No longer divided
On the Day of Peace
The world united

United in Hope
United in Love
United in Strength
Nations together!
United in Love
United in Hope
Creating Peace forever, forever, forever!
