Peace isn't treason, Peace is good reason,
Peace is Heaven's will;
"Peace on earth!" is what He said,
And I believe it still.

Is our country then so weak
That it can only thrive
By bombing peasant villages
And burning babes alive,
Burning babes alive?

Peace isn't treason, Peace is good reason,
Peace is Heaven's will;
"Peace on earth!" is what He said,
And I believe it still.

Rich we are in everything,
Rich and strong and proud,
For our kings, the GNP,
For our sons, the shroud,
For our suns, the shroud.

Peace isn't treason, Peace is good reason,
Peace is Heaven's will;
"Peace on earth!" is what He said,
And I believe it still.

Wars there have always been,
We walk the same old way,
We walk the road our father's went
When they have gone astray,
When they have gone astray.

Peace isn't treason, Peace is good reason,
Peace is Heaven's will;
"Peace on earth!" is what He said,
And I believe it still.

When the voice of reason speaks,
Unreasoned voices rage,
And so we add another line
To history's bloody page,
History's bloody page.

Peace isn't treason, Peace is good reason,
Peace is Heaven's will;
"Peace on earth!" is what He said,
And I believe it still.

We must learn to live with peace
And take it as our friend,
We must learn to live with peace,
Or all the world will end,
All the world will end.

Peace isn't treason, Peace is good reason,
Peace is Heaven's will;
"Peace on earth!" is what He said,
And I believe it still.
