From the threads of hope we desperately cleave
To endless twists and turns we so blindly weave
From the loss of loved ones who untimely bereave
To murky pasts and mistakes we always try to leave

Let peace befall the hearts and souls that grieve

From the sins of our forefathers Adam and Eve
To the hardships that make us roll up our sleeve
From the many life blows that continuously peeve
To our spiritual ignorance and thoughts so naive
Let peace befall the hearts and souls that grieve

From the joys and pains we live and let live
To the memories and times we to seek relive
From the bliss and hurts of the love we give
To wrongs done unto us we need to forgive

Let peace befall the hearts and souls that grieve

From the fate or destiny we happen to receive
To blessings our righteousness hopes to retrieve
From the very faith and concepts we believe
To the many life dreams we strive to achieve

Let peace befall the hearts and souls that grieve

From the path we take and values we perceive
To the outcomes that our life’s choices conceive
From the trials and temptations that often deceive
To our weaknesses and faults we just cannot sieve

Let peace befall the hearts and souls that grieve
