|Peace Pilgrim in Hawaii - 1980|
Fill us up and spill over, Peace.
Let us know you with all our senses.
Attract us, Peace, move us to wake,
rest and broadcast you daily:
Peace has broken out of the sanctuary!
Peace is in Paris, Jerusalem, Baghdad and here!
Peace is arriving everywhere.
Let us spill into the streets
and be it.
