I wish that I could say
The world was one and fighting was a fable
And the greed would turn the tables
I wish for peace, I wish for peace

I wish that I could see
A world that can be free with no more crying
Oh, but some of us are trying
I wish for peace, I wish for peace

Who will hold the children dear if there's a painful tear?
Who will chase the clouds away?

Why pretend that there's no God?
Why pretend that there's no love to wrap around you?
I speak justice to confound you
I pray for peace, I pray for peace
I pray for peace
