'The Pilgrims'  Hymn'

..
We ask that we live and we labour in peace, in peace
Each man shall be our neighbour in peace, in peace
Distrust and hatred will turn to love,
All the prisoners freed,
And our only war will be the one
Against all human need.

 
We work for the end of disunion in truth, in truth
That all may be one communion in truth, in truth
We choose the road of peace and prayer
Countless pilgrims trod,
So that Hindu, Moslem, Christian, Jew
We all can worship one God.

 
We call to our sisters and brothers, unite, unite!
That all may live for others, unite, unite!
And so the nations will be as one,
One the flag unfurled,
One law, one faith, one hope, one truth,
One people and one world.

 
We call to our friends and our brothers, unite, unite!
That all may live for others, unite, unite!
And so the nations will be as one,
One the flag unfurled,
One law, one faith, one hope, one truth,
One people and one world.
