One earth, one land, shared by all
One earth, one land, shared by all,
One people under the living sun.
One chance to hear harmony’s call,
Echoed from when the world begun.
One life is ours, a journey we share,
From creation until our time ends.
And in that time, it is for us to care,
To love, to laugh and to make friends.
Too short for anger, too precious to hate,
Our lives should be a gift to mankind.
And as for forgiveness, it is never too late,
To seek peace and to open our mind.
To share our ways, to hold out our hand,
To not let hate win, nor hide behind fear.
One people, one life, one earth and one land,
Let us reach out and let others draw near.
