CHANT: “All we are saying is Give Peace a Chance.” 
(While alternately hitting the floor or lap to a 4/4 beat)



After the group chants the verse about 2x the rapper loudly speaks each stanza.
Group continues to tap out rhythm on lap or floor.




Stanza I:

You’re lookin’ in the mirror and you think you see

A reflection of the you that has come to be

But, your eyes are closed and your mind is too

Let God reveal the true You to you



CHANT 1x



Stanza II:

You tell me that you’re hurtin’ and you feel so lost

Spendin' time with ego has raised the cost

Look away, forgive, and head toward the Light

No need to spend another sleepless night.



CHANT 1x



Stanza III:

It's time to choose between Love and fear

Doin’ nothin’s gonna keep you right here!

Just a bit of will; sincere request

Opens up your mind to Spirit’s Quest



CHANT 1x



Stanza IV:

Spirit will answer and show you the Way

Remind you who you are each and every day

You are one with God and His Joy and Peace

Listen to Spirit and the pain will cease



CHANT 1x



Stanza V

Love and joy are ways to extend

No magic about it; nothing to pretend

Know you’re One with God, pull the curtain back

You’ll want for nothing. They’ll be no lack.



FINAL CHANT

(Voices and hand sounds get softer and softer as we end the chant. At the end, reach over and hold hands with those on either side as the chant ends with, "And with each other.")



I am Love

You are Love

We are One with God (3x)

And with each other (1x)
