Lyrics

NURSE
Dad's In the garden, he won't speak to Mum.

MARY DEE
Mother.

NURSE
Uncle's in bed with a pain in his...

SHANTY
The Devil is evil

PREACHER
And God is good.

MARY DEE
The Devil is evil

SHANTY
With a D.

MARY DEE
And God is good

SHANTY
Without an O.

MARY DEE and NURSE
God is good without an O.

SHANTY and PREACHER
O...

MARY DEE and NURSE
And so we are grateful for harmony
For we will be faithful

SHANTY and PREACHER
Eternally.

MARY DEE, NURSE, SHANTY and PREACHER
(Ah)

FULL CHORUS
(Ah)

God is good,
The universal savior.
Trust in Him
To lead us through the darkness.
Live in love and when the battle's won

MARY DEE and NURSE
Live in peace.

SHANTY and PREACHER
Live in peace.

FULL CHORUS
Live in peace for ever.

SOLO QUARTET
Live in peace.

ALL
Live in peace together.
