Hope for Christmas and the New Year
Hope is for peace around the world
To seek and be fulfilled,
Hope is for the calmness
For strength of mind and be fulfilled.
Each to love his brother and sister
To embrace in harmony and race,
To share the beauty of mother nature
To understand the look in a child's face.
For the world is too much at war
In unhappiness, unforgiving and blood,
We should say a prayer for the weak
The little children starving in mud.
The homeless on every street corner
The old and the frail of humanity,
Who fought for our freedom
Those that are losing their sanity.
Hope is for the unity of peace in our time
Hope is for the soldiers who protect our shore,
Hope at this Christmas time and the New Year
Is that our little children will have peace, not war.
Little children so innocent, meek and mild
May you know peace, joy and cheer,
Rainbow smiles for all the world to see
Instead of faces of darkness and fear.
