Little child
Dry your cryin' eyes
How can I explain?
The fear you feel inside

'Cause you were born
Into this evil world
Where man is killin' man
And no one knows just why

What have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

When the children cry
Let them know that we tried
'Cause when the children sing
Then the new world begins

Oh, little child
You must show the way
To a better day
For all the young

'Cause you were born
For all the world to see
That we all can live
With love and peace

No more Presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world
Under God

When the children cry
Let them know that we tried
'Cause when the children sing
Then the new world begins

Oh, what have we become
Take a look at all the things we all have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

And no more Presidents
And all the wars there will end
One united world
Oh under God

When the children cry
Let them know that we tried
'Cause when the children pray
You better show the way

When the children they fight
You better let them know it ain't right
'Cause when the children they sing
Then the new world begins
