Hope for tomorrow
Endurance in time of sorrow
Hearts bent to a stranger’s cry
Blessings falling from the sky.
Soldiers quick and safe return,
Love a lesson all will learn,
Answered prayers - supply of needs
Peace in thoughts, words and deeds.
News of comfort, peace and joy,
Gifts for every girl and boy.
Lessons learned that make souls wise,
Long hellos - no more good-byes
Grace is planted with all things good,
Outstretched hands of brotherhood,
A wish list made for humanity,
Can be fulfilled in you and me.
