Peace Is The Prize
(Eileen Penman)


[2006]
Another song by Eileen Penman. Her song, Children of the World, was inspired by the poverty and cruelty experienced on a daily basis by street children in cities throughout the world.'
We are the children of the street
Give us land, give us Peace
We are the children of the street
Give us land, give us Peace
We know a life of toil and pain
Every day it's just the same
We are the children of the street
Give us land, give us Peace

We are abused, we are kept as slaves
We have no love, only hardship's ways
We are crying, we are dying
We are longing to be free
We have a heart, we are human too.

We are the children of the poor
Give us land, give us Peace
We are the children of the poor
Give us land, give us Peace
We are the daughters and the sons
And our struggle's never done
We are the daughters and the sons
And our struggle's never done
We are the children of the poor
Give us land, give us Peace

We do not care if we live or die
If we were birds we could reach the sky
We are dreaming of a new day
When our lives will be recognized
We have a right, we are human too
We are the children of the world
Give us land, give us Peace
We are the children of the world
Give us land, give us Peace
Freedom's coming in our song
To this planet we belong
We are the children of the world
Give us land, give us Peace
We are the children of the world
Give us land, give us Peaceā€¦
