O For A World
1. O for a world where everyone
Respects each other's ways,
Where love is lived and all is done
With justice and with praise.
2. O for a world where goods are shared
And misery relieved,
Where truth is spoken, children spared,
3. We welcome one world family
And struggle with each choice
That opens us to unity
And gives our vision voice.
4. The poor are rich, the weak are strong,
The foolish ones are wise.
Tell all who mourn; outcasts belong,
Who perishes will rise.
5. O for a world preparing for
God's glorious reign of peace,
Where time and tears will be no more,
And all but love will cease.
