How I hate war, oh Lord, how I hate war
What is the point, what’s it intended for
Where is the end, tell me what shall we do
How can we comprehend life’s carry through ?
I see those faces that once were unlined
But now to agony are thus confined
I hear the rasping sound of raling breath
The gasping halt that’s prone to preface death
Be gone this hate, the anger too, I say
Please Lord we beg of You show us the way !
