Let The Manners of War Go To Sleep

-let the manners of war go to sleep
-achaic manners refusing a change
-a modern world of life begging for mercy
-peace at treshold of battles den
-let hatred and acrimony quit the temple
-let the joly friends dream a new song
-let the lovers forget their quarrels
-let the families buy a banner of love
-let all walk with same measure in the street
-let the light shine in every home with joy
-let the cities and the nations
-stretch their hands to  give the olive branch
-let there be silence in the lands
-and let the birds in the sky fly
-with their friendly songs
-making the animals to dance
 -to a tune in the forest jungle
-all natures writing a new culture
-when all manners of wars go to sleep
-to give our world a new a name
-for all to live in a new world
 -of sweetest dreams of cares
-within our dying carefree world
