Blood, wherever it is shed,
is universally blood red.
We have ancient hates and fears.
We all shed bitter tears.
All over the face of the earth,
families celebrate a baby’s birth.
Universally, people share love
and look to the skies above
seeking hope and inspiration.
We all know setbacks and frustration,
but in our dreams, we all can see
a world of brotherhood and peace.
