Peace on Earth

"Peace on earth, goodwill to men"
The angels sang bak then.
But where is peace, we wonder?
Amid the conflicts thunder?

Peace is loving one another,
Caring for a needy brother,
Find it in the quietness,
And in children's happiness.

In simple things forget our fear;
In faith know God is always near.
Christmas should bring real joy to men
And hope that peace will reign again.
