For Earth Day (which should be EVERY day)

Lay down your armament -
Let the fighting cease!
Let the common goal for all
be the one for peace.
The future's in our hands -
We're the caretakers of earth!
And isn't it time to let our love shine through
And give life back its worth?

The Creator of all life
makes everything with love.
And deep within each one of us
it's what we're all made of.
And so it is, with love,
we must create, too
A world that's fit for all of life -
and not just for a few.

So now,
Lay down your armament!
Let the fighting cease!
Let the common goal for all
be the one for peace!
The future's in our hands -
We're the caretakers of earth.
And it's time we let our love shine through -
and give life back it's worth!

For what benefits the whole of life
in joy and peace and Light,
is what we need to build with now
to help to make things right.
Each of us is given
free will to make a choice,
But those of us who long for peace
beseech you with one voice singing:

"LAY DOWN YOUR ARMAMENT!
LET THE FIGHTING CEASE!
LET THE COMMON GOAL FOR ALL
BE THE ONE FOR PEACE.
THE FUTURE'S IN OUR HANDS -
WE'RE THE CARETAKERS OF EARTH!
AND IT'S TIME WE LET OUR LOVE SHINE THROUGH
AND GIVE LIFE BACK ITS WORTH!

Yes, it's time we let our love shine through -
And give life back its worth.
