Teaching Peace

This rousing marching tune shows us that peace is a lot more than just a quiet and restful state.  Peace can be vibrant and full of life with important roles for each one of us, big and small, to play.  Use this song to playfully introduce the basic concepts of oneness and conflict resolutions.  Countless children have joyfully marched around their homes and classrooms singing, "One by one in our work and in our play, we are teaching peace by what we do and what we say!"

Themes: Peace, oneness, conflict resolution, march

Teaching Peace

 

Chorus

Teaching peace all the world around

You and me every city every town

One by one in our work and in our play

We are teaching peace by what we do and what we say

It's up to us to show we care

Reaching out to everybody everywhere

Heart to heart and friend to friend

Circling all around the world and back again

 

Chorus

 

So take my hand and come along

It's time to sing the world a brand new song

So sing it loud and sing it clear

All together now so everyone can hear

 

Chorus

 

Sound off! One, two, three, four...

It's up to us to show we care

Reaching out to everybody everywhere

Heart to heart and friend to friend

Circling all around the world and back again

 Chorus
