Sharing this week’s song of peace for our world:

Originally recorded in 1964 by the Kingston Trio, Get Together has been recorded by several groups in the years since then. This version by the Youngbloods was released in 1967 and then re-released in 1969, becoming a #5 hit in the U.S.

Get together by the youngbloods

Love is but a song we sing,
fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains
ring, or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
and you may not know why

C’mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together, try to
love one another right now

Some may come and some
may go, we will surely pass
When the one that left us here
returns for us at last
We are but a moments sunlight
fading in the grass

C’mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together, try to
love one another right now

C’mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together, try to
love one another right now

If you hear the song I sing,
you will understand (Listen !)
You hold the key to love and
fear all in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both,
it’s there at your command

C’mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together, try to
love one another right now

C’mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together, try to
love one another right now
(I said !)

C’mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together, try to
love one another right now

Right now !
Right now !

Music is the universal language of mankind.

My faith calls me to work for peace and justice and to accept and love all people.  In a world that seems to be so full of hatred, I must do all I can to pursue justice and peace in my own little corner of the globe.
