A Little Peace

Gentle Friends, a song originally written in protest and just beautiful... 
one of my very favorite pieces...

Finlandia - Jean Sibelius - Sung by Cantus

Here are the lyrics...

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 cloverleaf 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 nations
A song of peace for their and for mine
_______________

Stay Safe!

Good Thoughts! Good words! Good Deeds!
