Peace Poem by John Denver

Posted on Sat, Mar 31, 2007

"Blessed are the Peacemakers"

"The Peace Poem"

 There's a name for war and killing
 there's a name for giving in
 when you know another answer
 for me the name is sin
 but there's still time to turn around
 and make all hatred cease
 and give another name to living
 and we could call it peace

 And peace would be the road we walk
 each step along the way
 and peace would be the way we work
 and peace the way we play

 And in all we see that's different
 and in all the things we know
 peace would be the way we look
 and peace the way we grow

 There's a name for separation
 there's a name for first and last
 when it's all for us or nothing
 for me the name is past
 but there's still time to turn around
 and make all hatred cease
 and give a name to all the future
 and we could call it peace

 And if peace is what we pray for
 and peace is what we give
 then peace will be the way we are
 and peace the way we live

 Yes there still is the time to turn around
 and make all hatred cease
 and give another name to living
 and we can call it peace
