Lyrics

PRINCE OF PEACE

1ST VERSE:

Why can’t we get ourselves together
And live in love and harmony
Why can’t we love one another
While we await the Prince of Peace

CHORUS:

How long, how long
Will mothers have to cry
How long, how long
Will innocents have to die

How long, how long
Will the nations be divided
How long, how long
Will justice be denied us

2ND VERSE:

Why can’t we learn to live with honor
Paving our way with equity
Teaching young men to be good fathers
While we await the Prince of Peace

Why do we glory in tradition
Explaining our way around the truth
We need to keep all the commandments
While we await the Prince of Peace

CHORUS

How long, how long
How long will it take
How long, how long
Will the faithful keep the faith

How long, how long
How long will it be
How long, how long
Until we rejoice in victory

BRIDGE:

Gotta’ be ready, gotta’ be ready
Gotta’ be ready, gotta’ be ready
Gotta’ be ready, gotta’ be ready
Gotta’ be ready, gotta’ be ready

REPEAT 2ND VERSE

REPEAT 2ND CHORUS

How long, how long
Will the nations be divided
How long how long
Will justice be denied us

How long how long
How long will it be
How long, how long
Until we rejoice in victory

REPEAT BRIDGE

Tell everybody you know, you gotta’ be ready
