Peace Village Song

A peace song with movements written for youth by facilitator Paul Simon.

In this video, US based facilitator Paul Simon shares a song that he wrote specifically for use with the young people he works with. This song involves movement, so it’s a great, early morning wake-up or energizer song.


I’ve got peace, flowing like a river,
In my soul, in my soul.
I’ve got courage, roaring like a lion,
In my soul, in my soul.
I’ve got love, gushing like a fountain,
In my soul, in my soul.
I hold you all, in my soul.

Tips: The movements that accompany this song help to bring the whole body into the learning process.
