Peace, lend a hand. Peace isn't the absence of war, It isn't the result of war. Peace begins within, but it ends without. Peace, lend a hand. You cannot win peace alone, everyone labor and groan. Envy, greed, and lust, these make peace a bust. Peace, lend a hand. All your neighbors you must see, as your friends with spirits free. Your lives intertwined, spirit, body, mind. Peace, lend a hand. All peace with faith must begin, a peace within is too thin. Look around to see, what your life could be.
