If we know love…

If we all love…
Peace we know
If we share kindly…
Our hearts would glow
If we give thoughtfully…
Our souls would well grow


If love is our guide…
The wars would slide
If we live in calm…
We reap serenity
If we defend our brothers…
The future’s harmony


If love is our shield…
Richness reigns
We live together in quiet abundance…
For tomorrow’s gift is timeless gold
Love’s the victor…
Over hate and hurt


If we practice family bond…
We defeat division and scorn
We live for each other…
Shielding our children,
…and their justified chance to succeed


If we all love…
The devil’s no more
We survive the ill-temptations…
Combined in a sacred resolution
Purposeful and meaningful…
Love’s our unifying master


If we know love…
We have been converted
From the aches of impiety…
We stand tall in blessedness
Forever in fortune…
To idyllic paradise deserved
