Let there be one God, unrivalled, equally for all, not owned by a select few.

Jesus, have mercy on us,
We are your wayward sheep.
It’s as if, to the Satan,
We’ve given souls to keep.

In your name we commit sins
And bomb other countries.
The more we swear by your name,
The more our crimes increase.

Jesus, this Christmas come to
Our hearts and give us light.
Let us see you in all men,
Please give us such insight.

Make this world a better place.
Proclaim a new gospel.
Allah and Father are one.
Please so, the whole world, tell.

Jesus, enough of this war
In what is your birth place.
Why must Christians and Muslims
Always fight for your grace?
