You know that everybody has a voice
And how they use it is their own free choice
But in your glory I will not rejoice
If you choose the ways of war
If you choose the ways of war
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
My country 'tis of thee; in God we trust
But how much longer will he shelter us
While we choose the ways of war
While the winds of war rage on
Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Let it start here with me
Oh let mine be a voice for peace
The good book tells us thou shalt not kill
The truth came shining and it's shining still
But how much blood upon this earth must
spill
Before we lay our weapons down
Let us lay our weapons down
Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Let it start here with me
Oh let mine be a voice for peace
Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Let it start here with me
Oh let mine be a voice
And in the face of the beast
Oh let mine be a voice
Until the breaths in me cease
Oh let mine be a voice for peace
Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice
for peace
Oh let mine --
Raise your voice up
Raise your voice up
Raise your voice up and sing for the promise
of peace --
