THE PATH TO PEACE

To follow the advice of the holy book,
Is to follow the path to peace,
Then friends are everywhere you look,
And love doth never cease.

Yet all our dreams and hopes for this,
Held in our sacred prayers,
Will never bring the world such bliss,
For it’s not by all people shared.

So those who love their fellow man,
Their fellow man must kill,
That all those folk who love God can,
Retain their Saviour’s will.

For to understand the sacrifice,
Of Jesus on the cross,
We note the bibles good advice,
That gain must come from loss.

Have faith my friends in those who go
Armed to a foreign shore
For the love of peace, to face the foe,
That can only be gained by war.
