Swords into Ploughshares

We have a vision of the world not yet realised

All: Where they will beat their swords into ploughshares


They will have no need of the weapons of war

All: They will beat their spears into pruning hooks


Conflicts between countries and communities will be resolved by dialogue

All: Nation will not lift up sword against nation


In schools and colleges across the world children and young people will learn about mutual understanding and reconciliation

All: They will not learn war any more


They will learn about compassion, forgiveness and peace

All: They will not hurt or destroy
