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

Gentle Mother, Font of Mercy, also known as Sansa’s Hymn,  is from the fantasy drama television series Game of Thrones.  Although the series is now in its 6th season, I must admit I have never seen it because it comes on a television channel we do not get. (I absolutely must watch past seasons and episodes, as they now are available online.)  I first heard this song elsewhere and found it to be a beautiful and poignant call for peace.

 

sansa’s hymn
Gentle Mother, font of mercy,
Save our sons from war, we pray.
Stay the swords and stay the arrows,
Let them know a better day.
Gentle Mother, strength of women,
Help our daughters through this fray.
Soothe the wrath and tame the fury,
Teach us all a kinder way.
Gentle Mother, font of mercy,
Save our sons from war, we pray.
Stay the swords and stay the arrows,
Let them know a better day.

 

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.
