(A shout out to the world to wake up and realize our responsibility toward Mother Earth and her inhabitants.)

*********************************
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 we let our love shine through
and give life back it's worth?

What gain will you have
when the planet, that we live,
is stripped of its nourishment
that it was meant to give?
There's enough to go around
once we learn to care.
The secret is to give with love,
and for everyone to share!

So now
(Chorus:)
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!

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
(Chorus)

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!
