Ilahi - Live In Peace

Written by Michael S. Hysinger – michaelhysinger@yahoo.com

 

A Dervish dances in a fountain - Then leaps onto the highest mountain

He shouts the end will come around un-

less we stop the war and learn to live in peace

 

I look around me at my brothers - And see them fighting one another

I hear a sound and run for cover

Has the war begun so soon God help us please

 

I try to see peace in the midst of the fight

I cry for love in the passing night

I die and surrender to darkness and light - Amen

 

And when the war is finally over - A child will die we'll never know her

She'll give her life what will we owe her

What about the million more who will be gone

 

My friend you see the way before you - Let's live in peace oh I implore you

Together we can stop the war - who

knows what we can do if we learn to get along

 

And now as I reach for your hand I can see

Just how you feel how you cry like me

Let's vow to give love so we all can be free - again

 

La Ilahe Illallah, La Ilahe Illallah, La Ilahe Illallah, La Ilahe Illallah

And now as I reach for your hand I can see              (In Arabic, etc.)

Just how you feel how you cry like me

Let's vow to give love so we all can be free - again

 

La Ilahe Illallah, La Ilahe Illallah, La Ilahe Illallah, La Ilahe Illallah

And now as I reach for your hand I can see                   

Just how you feel how you cry like me                         

Let's vow to love so we all can be free - again - and live in peace

La Ilahe Illallah, La Ilahe Illallah, La Ilahe Illallah, La Ilahe Illallah
