Pete Seeger Lyrics

Old Hundred Lyrics
All people that on earth do dwell,
Sing out for peace 'tween heav'n and hell.
'Tween East and West and low and high,
Sing! peace on earth and sea and sky.

Old Hundred, you've served many years
To sing one people's hopes and fear,
But we've new verses for you now.
Sing peace between the earth and plow.

Sing peace between the grass and trees,
Between the continents and seas,
Between the lion and the lamb.
Between young Ivan and young Sam.

Between the white, black, red and brown,
Between the wilderness and town,
Sing peace between the near and far,
'Tween Allah and six-pointed star.

The fish that swim, the birds that fly,
The deepest seas, the stars on high,
Bear witness now that you and I
Sing peace on earth and sea and sky.

Old Hundred, please don't think us wrong
For adding verses to your song.
Sing peace between the old and young,
'Tween every faith and every tongue.

All people that on earth do dwell,
Sing out for peace 'tween heav'n and hell.
'Tween East and West and low and high,
Sing! peace on earth and sea and sky.
