By: It's part of the Latin Mass
Written in: A long time ago indeed.
I have thoughts: Okay, you caught me. This song doesn't so much have verses as one sentence that's repeated many, many times. What can I say--I wanted at least one in Latin, this is my favourite, so here it is. Plus, it's not like praying for peace has ever passed out of necessity, and we need it today as much as we ever have.
Incidentally, I learned this song from M*A*S*H, and while the entire clip from the episode ("Dear Sis") doesn't seem to be hanging out on YouTube, the cast singing the song is on the first part of this video.
Verse: This is an easy one!
Dona nobis pacem, pacemWatch:
Dona nobis pacem.
