Words by Garnett Ann Schultz

Music by J. Roel Lungay

Arranged and performed by Fr. J. Roel Lungay

Peace in my heart -
This is my prayer -
Quiet contentment,
To have and to share.
Each new tomorrow
Blessed and real,
Each wondrous dawning
A daybreak ideal.

Peace in my home -
This I would ask -
Sharing each burden
To lighten our task.
Laughter abundant,
So much that's worthwhile;
Faith, hope and courage,
A bright happy smile.

Peace in this country -
This is my dream!
Peace we must cherish,
Joyous supreme.
No more of hatred,
No more of crime.
Peacefulness only,
In your heart and mine.

Peace in our world -
This is my prayer -
With one God to guide us
And one God to care.
All of us neighbors
Then surely we'll see
That peace is the answer
To eternity.
