Prayer for Peace



Assisi Province, South India

South India ProvinceHoly Babe of Bethlehem,

Beacon of love and peace,

Be born in us anew,

Bring thy peace,

That the shepherds proclaim;

The kings implore,

Enkindle our weary hearts,

With thy everlasting love,

At the morning gleam,

Twinkles on the dew drops.

To be a leading star that leads,

The abandoned to peace and harmony,

When defeat creep in,

To steal our soul’s serenity,

When we are caught in,

Throbbing darkness and despair,

May your spark of peace,

Make others see your glory,

Sovereign ruler, Prince of Peace,

Reign in our heart forever.
