"How Beautiful Upon the Mountain" as written by and Tom Paxton....
How beautiful upon the mountain
Are the steps of those who walk in peace
How beautiful upon the mountain
Are the steps of those who walk in peace

Across the bridge at Selma you came marching side by side
In your eyes a new world on the way
Hope was in your heart and justice would not be denied
You sang we shall overcome some day

God knows the courage you possessed
And Issiah said it best

How beautiful upon the mountain
Are the steps of those who walk in peace
How beautiful upon the mountain
Are the steps of those who walk in peace

Marching round the White House, marching round the Pentagon
Marching round the mighty missile plans
Speaking truth to power, singing peace in Babylon
Asking us why not give peace a chance

God knows the courage you possess
And Issiah said it best

How beautiful upon the mountain
Are the steps of those who walk in peace
How beautiful upon the mountain
Are the steps of those who walk in peace

Now the generations who have joined you on this road
Look to you with power in their eyes
Now you know the torch has passed as they pick up the load
Now you see their eyes are on the prize

God knows the courage they possess
And Issiah said it best

How beautiful upon the mountain
Are the steps of those who walk in peace
How beautiful upon the mountain
Are the steps of those who walk in peace

How beautiful upon the mountain
Are the steps of those who walk in peace
How beautiful upon the mountain
Are the steps of those who walk in peace
Are the steps of those who walk in peace
