Sung by Swami Kriyananda, in a concert in Germany around 1982.
Peace gave us the mountains.
Peace gave us the sky.
Nightly, when starlight enfolds us,
Peace is its lullaby.
Peace gave us the morning.
Peace gave us the sun. B
ird songs that call us to welcome
Day, and fresh labors begun.
Peace gave us the seasons.
Peace gave us the rain—
Cool clouds that gather to bless us,
Mist hands that soothe away pain.
Peace gave us our hearts’ love.
Peace gave us our smiles:
Rays of God’s presence within us.
Light that all strife reconciles.
