Laws of Harmony

A sound it is with which we win our war?
For such the lesson Joshua would teach
And can it be effective weapons are
Nonviolent, and well within our reach?

A spark'ling trumpet fanfare, ah, forsooth!
The rhytm of determined marching feet
A calm and careful statement of the truth
With these the awesome enemy we meet

And laughter, that most potent sound we hear
The heav'nly laughter only love can bring
Then gentle greetings, wishes for good cheer
And songs from lips of lovely maidens spring!

Celest'ial laws of harmony behold
Sweet sounds can keep away the inner cold
