   The course of human history moves toward
   A time of global wisdom and accord
   Among once warring factions, thus matured
   In humane sanity and hence secured
   From ancient outrage and the tragedy
   That long has passed for human history.

   Or so we now may hope and must believe
   Is something we can consciously achieve
   Through more than merely faith and urgent prayer,
   But by a recognition of what’s fair
   And equable, compassionate and just:
   The Golden Rule declares how people must
   Behave if they would live in loving peace
   So anguish and injustices shall cease.
