LA PAIX EN REPUBLIQUE DEMOCRATIQUE DU CONGO

La paix.
Oh toi la paix, dont nous recherchons
Tu es si pleine de joie et de sérénité
Tu es celle que nous désirons à foison
Celle que nous voulons pour l’éternité

Même si certaines personnes te rejettent
Saches que d’autres te recherchent
Oui ceux qui on mare de toutes ces guerres
Qui dévastent tout sur notre pauvre terre

Tu es meilleurs que toutes guerres
Tu es pour nous trop précieuse
Car bien sur nous avons que faire
De ces guerres oui si monstrueuses

Nous préférons vivre heureux
Oui sans soucis, dans ta paix
Pour éviter d’être malheureux
Surtout vivre dans la sérénité.

La population de la RDC, surtout ceux de GOMA et ces environs ont besoin de toi !
Nous te voulons pour toujours sur notre terre !!!!

PEACE IN THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO

Peace.
Oh peace that we pine for
Endless joy and serenity
A wish for nothing more
Than eternal harmony

Some cast it aside
Some seek it far and wide
Tired of blood and strife
Taking the planet's life

Peace, greater than any war
A gift so precious
To those who abhor
These wars so vicious

We want to be happy
Without war, without worry
Escape misery
And live in serenity

The people of the DRC need peace, especially those from GOMA and the surrounding area! We want peace on our planet forever!!!!
