We Come In Peace

Launched into the heavens
We soar across the sky
Weightless soon and unrestrained
We’ll waive the earth goodbye
Apollo’s golden chariot
And even Gemini
Carries us into the future
To Luna now we fly

What we will find
No one can say
Here there’s no night
Here there’s no day

We come in peace for all mankind
Fulfillment of a dream as old as time
United in knowledge in science in truth
One small step and man sets foot on the moon

Is this how Magellan felt
When he sailed around the world?
Planting now the flag of freedom
Never to be furled
Like the Chinese emperor
Who rode a rocket chair
Challenge God and soon return
The moon man’s stone cold stare

The light of the stars
Shows us the way
Here there’s no night
Here there’s no day

We come in peace for all mankind
Fulfillment of a dream as old as time
United in knowledge in science in truth
One small step and man sets foot on the moon

The spirit of adventure
Ever expanding truth
Restores our humanity
Returns us to our youth

More than just mere exploration
A symbol of the free
Planted on the lowlands
Sea of tranquility
From a divided human race
The eyes of humanity
Means man will surely triumph
The truth of liberty

What we will learn
No one can say
Where there’s no night
Where there’s no day

We come in peace for all mankind
Fulfillment of a dream as old as time
United in knowledge in science in truth
One small step and man sets foot on the moon

We come in peace
For all mankind
We come in peace
For all mankind

One small step for a man one giant leap for all mankind.
