Were there but a blueprint To stop fear, terror, rage Or a Book wherein written Answer upon page Could we but envision Ending bigotry, hate To love one another Satan’s evil, abate And not merely say it But upon our faith, act To make this world better Our thoughts and prayers, fact God, give us the passion And the goodness of heart To turn words into deeds And the courage to start
