Israeli President Posts Peace Song on Website

ray-of-hope.jpgIsraeli president Shimon Peres, who is a Noble Peace Prize laureate, wrote lyrics to a song about peace, entitled Ray of Hope and posted them on Songweavers, a website where musicians from around the world — including Iran — have added music to go with the words.

So far, musicians from around the world, including Iran, have transformed his Ray of Hope with compositions as members hope, “Maybe the world can find some peace through music.”

Members of the Songweavers website have designed and compiled a humanitarian CD from which all proceeds will go to charity.

The CD was given to Mr. Shimon Peres this week and he has taken 100 copies, containing 20 versions of the song with him to Bejing, where he will give the Peace CD to other heads of State.

Here are his lyrics: 

Ray of Hope – Shimon Peres

O my Lord, it’s time to pray
When a new sun shines, let’s make hay
So save my land from desert stay
Call the oceans, salt to melt away

And bless streams with love’s sway
Provide my foe and friend a bloodless day
Invite boys and girls for peace to pray, O, Ye
Then send a ray of hope for a new way

And bless streams with love’s sway
Provide my foe and friend a bloodless day
Invite boys and girls for peace to pray, O, Ye
Then send a ray of hope for a new way
