  • All babies together, everyone a seed
    Half of us are satisfied, half of us in need
    Love's bountiful in us, tarnished by our greed
    When will there be a harvest for the world

    A nation planted, so concerned with gain
    As the seasons come and go, greater grows the pain
    And far too many feelin' the strain
    When will there be a harvest for the world

    Gather everyman, gather everywoman
    Celebrate your lives, give thanks for your children
    Gather everyone, gather all together
    Overlooking none, hopin' life gets better for the world

    Dress me up for battle, when all I want is peace
    Those of us who pay the price, come home with the least
    Nation after nation, turning into beast
    When will there be a harvest for the world Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER H JASPER, CHRISTOPHER JASPER, ERNIE ISLEY, MARVIN ISLEY, O'KELLY ISLEY, RONALD ISLEY, RUDOLPH ISLEY
