Violence begets violence, hate begets hate,

Morning or night, early or late,

The sword is answered by the sword,

Gun by gun, bomb by bomb, fury is lord.

Hear now the loud cry of the oppressed

By love alone can the wounds be dressed.

Christ on the cross is killed again and again

In every innocent demolished by social sin.

Stop. Pause. Change now your path,

It is time to end the bloodbath.

Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,

Whose image you’ve attacked with such a fiery dart.
