From a distance the world looks blue and green
From a distance the ocean meets the stream
From a distance there is harmony

It's the voice of every man
And no one is in need
No hungry mouths to feed
Marching in a common band
Playing songs of home, playing songs of peace
God is watching us, God is watching us
From a distance you look like my friend
From a distance I can't comprehend

And it echoes through the land
It's the heart of every man
It's the song of every man
