How Harmonious Might be Our World

How harmonious might be our world

Full of spiritual pastoral songs

If we didn’t do wrong or go wrong,

How harmonious might be our world!

How glamorous might be our day

Full of happiness, filled with sunbeams

If we didn’t kill our fabulous dreams,

How glamorous might be our day!

How valuable might be our past

Full of gems and precious stones

If we were not at war, if we didn’t hear moans,

How valuable might be our past!
