For Paris

When the world has lost peace and order
And hate and fear have won the day,
When death has claimed a precious number
And again the light has dimmed away,

Now stop all pretense of our borders,
And keep each other safe and sheltered.
Meet the challenge from every quarter,
And give the world our light unfettered.

Breathe and rise and fight the burning
So life and hope can find their way.
Together we face the new day’s turning
So love again may have it’s day.
