There Would Be Peace

If everyone knew their inborn goodness
If everyone truly knew their worth
If everyone knew their own magnificence
Surely there would be peace on earth

If everyone knew the light in Jesus
Was the same light that shines in them
If everyone saw the way God sees us
We’d be like stars of Bethlehem

Alleluia, Alleluia
Alleluia, Alleluia

If we could know that every humble heart
Is the temple where God dwells
How could we not love our brethren?
How could we not love ourselves?

And so this Christmas, let it be born in us
Underneath our own bright star
May we open our most precious gift
The radiance that we are

Alleluia, Alleluia
Alleluia, Alleluia

If everyone knew their inborn goodness
If everyone truly knew their worth
If everyone knew their own magnificence
Surely there would be
Surely there would be peace
Surely there would be peace on earth
