Weeping Christmas

Now I lay me down to sleep
Praying for peace not counting sheep
As Christmas nears there are bullets flying
Around their trees are mothers crying

May we find the way to grace
So mother and child can embrace
War on disease not human flesh
Heart and mind cure afresh

Is coexistence really a dream?
Revenge is such a fraudulent scheme
Stay in the moment, don’t look behind
Repent our angry frame of mind

Tear down the walls of hate and fear
Starve the war loving profiteer
Make Christmas a time to celebrate
Forgiveness can cure our love of hate
