THE PEACE OF CHRIST (Written by Eddie O’Corbaidh)
Lord, You gave us the world, let us look after it, You gave us animals, let us look after them,
You gave us family and friends, let us love them, You gave us love, let us share it,
You gave us faith, let us express it, You gave us trust, let us use it,
You gave us joy and happiness, let us be overcome by it, You gave us life, let us enjoy it,
BUT most of all, you gave us peace, let us embrace it. Amen.
