Apparently there are 2 sets of lyrics to Sibelius' Finlandia. These are the ones that Kathy Kelly is referring to.

A Song of Peace

This is my song, O God of all the nations,
a song of peace for lands afar and mine.
This is my home, the country where my heart is;
here are my hopes, my part of Your design.
But other hearts in other lands are beating
with hopes and dreams as true and high as mine.

My country's skies are bluer than the ocean,
And sunlight beams on cloverleaf and pine.
But other lands have sunlight too and clover,
And skies are everywhere as blue as mine.
Oh hear my song, oh God of all the nations,
A song of peace for their land and for mine.

This is my song, O God of all the nations,
a prayer that peace transcends in every place.
And yet I pray for my beloved country -
the reassurance of continued grace.
Lord, help us find our one-ness in the Savior,
in spite of differences of age and race.

May truth and freedom come to every nation
May peace abound where strife has raged so long;
That each may seek to love and build together,
A world united, righting every wrong.
A world united in its love for freedom,
Proclaiming peace together in one song.

This is my prayer, O Lord of all earth's kingdoms,
Thy kingdom come - on earth, Thy will be done.
Let Christ be lifted up 'til all will serve Him,
and hearts united, learn to live as one.
O hear my prayer, Thou God of all the nations,
myself I give Thee - let Thy will be done.
