I Will Do My Utmost for Peace. Poem for Memorial




Psalm 122 

 

I rejoiced when I heard them announce,

“The time of warfare is past.

No more will brother hate brother

or violence have its way.

No more will they drown out God’s silence

and shut their hearts to his song.”

 

Pray for peace in the cities

and harmony among the races.

May peace come to live on our streets

and justice within our walls.

With all my heart I will pray

that peace comes to live among us.

For the sake of all earth’s people,

I will do my utmost for peace.

 

 

(The Psalms , translated by Stephen Mitchell)

I never did understand why they changed it from Decoration Day to Memorial Day!
