I have followed you all my life.
Though I hid from you, and strayed,
You have led me back to the path of peace and love.
II What’s changed?
Why do we still have leaders,
who fill their heads with power
and people who fill their hearts
with what they don’t have,
watching with greed and jealousy?
So it was 5000 years ago, God.
We haven’t learned to love one another
and trust in you still.
III I fear that we haven’t learned anything,
that we must learn it again all over,
leading us to terrible retribution and suffering.
For millions, it is happening now here on our planet.
Will it happen?
And can it be otherwise?
IV I hope
that young and old
will join with you
in talking about peace,
in marching for peace,
that the people of the world hold hands,
revealing you at the centre of our being
So that all get fair shares
and the earth’s abundance
is open to everyone.
I am your loving and obedient sheep.
I will follow you all the rest of my days.
I hope in peace and love.
