Before going to Australia, Sri Chinmoy wrote 23 songs in English, which he asked a small group of girls from the San Francisco Centre to learn and sing during the 13 April celebrations. Following are the words to a few of the songs.

O world of peace

O world of peace,
O world of light,
How long shall I
With darkness fight?
How long my heart
Shall cry in vain?
This eyeless world
Has nothing but pain.
