Verse 1 The world we live in is a garden
Mankind reaps what mankind sews
We are farming our future
Harvesting the things we grow
Chorus Plant a peace tree for the children
It will remain here when we go
Plant a peace tree for the children
Give it love and watch it grow
Verse 2 Through the ages we've been fighting
Now it's time to make a change
Cast aside those crazy weapons
Time to quit our foolish games

A peaceful world is like an oak tree
It takes time to get its start
And it survives the coldest winters
When it lives within our hearts
Chorus Plant a peace tree for the children
It will remain here when we go
Plant a peace tree for the children
Give it love and watch it grow
Verse 3 Every day the roots grow deeper
Help to make the peace tree strong
Every day our dream grows higher
Bring the world where it belongs

Plant a tree and start a forest
For generations yet to come
They'll look back and they'll remember
Carry on the things we've done
Chorus Plant a peace tree for the children
It will remain here when we go
Plant a peace tree for the children
Give it love and watch it grow
Verse 4 So today we plant a sapling
Nurture it and also pray
That the ones who play beneath it
May the live in peace always
Chorus Plant a peace tree for the children
It will remain here when we go
Plant a peace tree for the children
Give it love and watch it grow
