BREAK DOWN BARRIERS
Tune: "Lassie O'Mine!"

O world of industry from sea to sea
Filled with barriers of race and creed
O loving neighbor hear our plea
In the age of strife and greed.

Chorus:
Break down barriers--change our thought
With the help of the One above
Break down barriers--change our thought
Help widen the reach of love.

O Father of mercies help us to find
'Mongst the people of all the lands
And help us to understand
The loving brotherhood of mankind.
