Truth, Love, Peace

lyrics

When I was young,
My Mama said to me
"My dearest child, you won't go wrong
If this advice you'll heed ...

Make Truth, Love, Peace,
Your Holy Trinity;
And ever happy be!
So come and sing with me:

Truth, Love, Peace.
Is it too much to ask?
Truth, Love, Peace ...
I'll sing from dawn to dusk.

Truth, Love, Peace ...
Is it too much to wish for?
Truth, Love, Peace, please ...-
And let our spirits soar."

***

My Mama's older now
And long since I've not seen
Her wrinkled face; her gentle words
Are with me, inside, still ...

"Please, child, trust me;
You never will go wrong
If Truth, Love, Peace
Is your life's powerful song!"

Truth, Love, Peace.
Is it too much to ask?
Truth, Love, Peace ...
I'll sing from dawn to dusk.

Truth, Love, Peace ...
Is it too much to wish for?
Truth, Love, Peace, please ...-
And let our spirits soar.

***

[BRIDGE]

***

My Mama's waiting for me now,
To visit her again;
In these tough times, she's wondering
How, lately, I have been.

I miss her so, just one more hug
I want to her to give;
And let her know I've always tried
To practice what we've preached:

Truth, Love, Peace.
Is it too much to ask?
Truth, Love, Peace ...
I'll sing from dawn to dusk.

Truth, Love, Peace ...
Is it too much to wish for?
Truth, Love, Peace, please ...
And let our spirits soar.
