74. Our Garden Full of Flowers

1 Our garden full of flowers, of veg'tables and greens
Of onions and tomatoes, of peppers and of beans
We fertilize and weed them and water ev'ry row
The more that we attend them, the more that they will grow

2 The hates and fears within us all want attention too
And ev'ry time they get it, they do what they will do
When hates and fears control us and never want to go
The more that we attend them, the more that they will grow

3 Our peace we keep it living by tending to its needs
By practicing nonviolence in thought and word and deed
Our peace requires we care for the people we don't know
The more that we attend them, the more our peace will grow.
