Hopeless to help in this violence, this crisis,

here in the focus of bloodshed and fear,

common humanity binds us together,

love at the centre, not hatred's veneer.


Jewish and Christian and Muslim together,

all the world's people, we each have a place.

Love is our purpose when those filled with hatred

break down relationships, nullify grace.

Verse 3 follows
