In the midst of pain and sorrow,
Let the light of joy remain.
When clouds of gloom surround us,
Let a ray of hope sustain.
When wrath and hate toss us,
Let’s hold hands and bow and pray
For the force of good to bind us,
For peace and love to stay.
We feel and think in different ways,
Each bears a different name,
But in depths of feeling and basic needs
We’re humans: all the same.
