International day of peace

This is my all time favorite peace song.  It speaks of the common bonds that can unite us all if we will open our heart.

Song of Peace (Finlandia) Sibelius/Stone
Click here to listen

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 clover leaf and pine
But other lands have sunlight too, and clover
And skies are everywhere as blue as mine
Oh hear my song, thou god of all the nation
A song of peace for their land and for mine
