2017
A Song of Peace

All proceeds from the sale of this recording will benefit Amnesty International
Melody composed by Jean Sibelius, 1899. First two verses written in 1934 by Lloyd Stone ("This Is My Song")
This is my song, O God of all the nations,
a song of peace for lands afar and mine;
this is my home, the country where my heart is;
here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine:
but other hearts in other lands are beating
with hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.

My country's skies are bluer than the ocean,
and sunlight beams on cloverleaf and pine;
but other lands have sunlight too, and clover,
and skies are everywhere as blue as mine:
O hear my song, O God of all the nations,
a song of peace for their land and for mine.

May truth and freedom come to every nation;
may peace abound where strife has raged so long;
That we might all seek to work and build together,
a world united, righting every wrong;

O hear my song, O God of all the nations,
a song of peace for their land and for mine.

a song of peace for their land and for mine.

I fail to understand why this one has been published as a song of its own and not as a version of This Is My Song. The music of both songs is the same, composed by Jean Sibelius as part of his Finlandia . The lyrics are not altogether overlapping, but there’s not a single line in A Song of Peace that wouldn’t appear in This Is My Song. And last but not least, the titles are different, but as pointed out by Wikipedia, This Is My Song is sometimes called A Song of Peace.
