This cyclical song is written as a prayer that can be sung straight through or woven into a spoken prayer. The 2 voices can be sung by soloists, a soloist and a choir, or congregation and choir.


Enduring peace
Within our home
and on our street
where neighbors talk
and children meet

Enduring peace
for trusted friend
for hated foe
the hard-to-love
or hard-to-know.

Enduring peace
in city square
and country lane
on craggy peak
and grassy plain.

Enduring peace
across the globe
from east to west
and in between
the world at rest.

Enduring peace...
the world at rest.
