Text Information:

This text on peace was created to offer non-nationalistic words for a popular British tune. The first stanza depicts pax, a mode of peace focused on ending conflict, and the second (based on Isaiah 11:6–9) describes shalom, the condition of living in harmony and mutual good will.
