Hushed is the noise of battle, the can non's roar is stilled; Furled is the flag of carnage—the world with peace is filled. And over the plain and mountain Where lieth the sleeping dead, The Angel of Peace now hovers, Her snow-white wings outspread. And forth from the earth there springeth The blades of the waving grain To nod to the welcome harvest O'er the graves of the battle slain. And joyful, the nations gather, and man on the harvest looks, For swords are beaten to plowshears, and spears into pruning hooks. Stilled is the tread of armies armed for the deadly fray. And birds build nests in the cannons that belched death yesterday. Formen in the heat of passion Gave head to the voice of peace, And sitting 'neath branch of olive Have ordered that war shall cease, The wives and children singing Now welcome the wariors home, And laughter and joy are flinging Their echos to heaven's dome. And joy is the lot of nations as each on the grand scene looks, For swords are beaten to plowshears, and spears into pruning hooks. Gone are the hates of passions, tumult and striving ceased. And man made in God's own image from the blood-lust stands released. The shock of contending armies Gives way to the harvest song;, And Right with a palm branch waving, Is the victor over Wrong. The roar and the crash of battles, The moans of the dying cease; And over the plain and the mountain Is the clear sunlight of peace. The husband returns to the fireside, on the faces of loved ones looks, For swords are beaten to plowshears, and spears to pruning hooks. BUSINESS LOADS.
