Invoking the gracious gods above
To bless this beautiful earth of ours
With unconditional peace and love
I'll pray there be peace all around
In its skies and ethereal space
On its vast lands and in deep waters
With their myriad forms of creatures.
May it exist among animals and birds
Trees and herbs and gentle creepers
May it cover the whole universe
Helping its inmates to survive and flourish
But above all things here mentioned
May it settle deep in the mind of Man
Making him aware of its supreme value
That's fountain-head of true happiness .
I know that in these tumultuous times
Songs of peace may not sound relevant
But to my mind, love and harmony
Never can be redundant or untoward.
Hence I am keen to celebrate this day
To promote everlasting peace in the world
Join me if you too like this campaign
And together shall we pledge to carry it on.
