The Aaronic Blessing (Peace On Earth)

This song is by Craig's Brother and appears on the album The Insidious Lie (2011).

Left here waiting for you, in the darkness of the final hour,
And the stench is more than I can bear
Some here doubt you are true, but your story is burned on my heart
When you talked, lives you changed, when you walked the earth with men
When will these things happen?

Is it foolishness to hope for

Peace on earth, peace on earth
Is it more than hope is worth?
Peace on earth, on earth

And they're gathered against you, 'cause the story never changed
Who can count the foes of Israel?
And haven't you forgotten your promises?
Or at least where the Jordan flows (Let the land give up its kin)
From the north, from the south, let the land give up its kin
Does this need to happen? Is all this bloodshed predestined?

Peace on earth, peace on earth
Is it more than mere hope is worth?
Peace on earth, peace on earth

And I won't be persuaded that it's more than I can hope for
And I won't look away, 'cause it's too much to ignore
All this indiscriminate hatred in the name of the rejected
Might be more than I can change, but I vow never to accept it

How will they know you?
If they won't choose to open their mind?
How will they see you?
If they won't choose to open their eyes?
Open their eyes, open their eyes

Peace on earth, peace on earth
Is it more than hope is worth?
Peace on earth, peace on earth
Peace on earth, on earth
