Peace Tree Music

The link below shares the song ‘I Dream of the Day…’, written by Mitra Sen and composed by Ron Korb, which can be sung at your Peace Tree Day festival in your school, organization or city.

I Dream of the Day…

I dream of the day when we have peace in our land
When children around the world, can walk hand in hand

But today when we look for peace, we cannot seem to find
The beauty of our freedom is what we’ve left behind.

But now it’s up to you and me to bring back peace and harmony
If the wind blows peace across the sea, then all the children will be free

So let’s sing together and show we care. This beautiful world is what we share.
Take my hand and let’s live our dreams, and spread our visions of peace across the sea.

[Repeat] (second group starts overlap after the words ‘across the’)

I dream of the day when we have peace in our land
When children around the world, can walk hand in hand

But today when we look for peace, we cannot seem to find
The beauty of our freedom is what we’ve left behind.

But now it’s up to you and me to bring back peace and harmony
If the wind blows peace across the sea, and sprinkles love for you and me

So let’s join together and show we care. This beautiful world is what we share.
Take my hand and let’s live our dreams, and spread our visions of peace across the sea.
