Verse 1 You have the face
Face of a man
Face of a man from the next country over
Please sit by the fire
You're welcome to stay
And sing us your song
The one that brought us together

Tell your truth in your own words
The sting in your heart
From the war in your land
You're welcome to stay
You're safe among friends
We honor your spirit
Your maker
Forever and ever
Chorus May the next country over be peaceful
May the next country over be open and wise
May the next country over be peaceful
And may sacred traditions survive
Verse 2 You have the face
Face of a woman
Face of a woman from the next country over
Accept our few gifts
The seasons are short
And sing us your song
The one that brought us together

Show your strength
It's needed by all
Your strong hands of love
Like the rhythms of rainfall
You bringer of life
Great mother of life
We honor your spirit
Your maker
Forever and ever
Chorus May the next country over be peaceful
May the next country over be open and wise
May the next country over be peaceful
And may sacred traditions survive
Verse 3 You have the face
Face of a child
Face of a child from the next country over
Come fish from our banks
Explore this new land
And sing us your song
The one that brought us together

You're a lesson
A lesson in courage
You've lifted our faith
With the grace of a smile
You're welcome to stay
You're safe among friends
We honor your spirit
Your maker
Forever and ever
Chorus May the next country over be peaceful
May the next country over be open and wise
May the next country over be peaceful
And may sacred traditions survive

May the next country over be peaceful
May the next country over be open and wise
May the next country over be peaceful
And may sacred traditions survive
