Let There Be Peace on Earth

And Let It Begin With Me:


Boy, I bet you haven't heard those words in a while, and yet, I bet you've heard them. Those words were what came to me today when Jaxon made his way upstairs with a balloon flower that happened to match the Peace on Earth shirt he was wearing. It was all very reminiscent of the 1960s Peace Movement.

According to www.jan-leemusic.com, this song has been recorded many times over by the likes of such folks as Tennessee Ernie Ford, Andy Williams, Danny Kaye, Nat King Cole, the Smothers Brothers, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, Placido Domingo, Gladys Knight, Mahalia Jackson, Liberace, the International Children’s Choir, the Young Americans, Pat Boone, Crystal Gayle, Vince Gill, Harry Connick Jr., and Johnny Mathis, among others.

Let there be peace on Earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on Earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on Earth,
And let it begin with me.

(child)
Let there be peace on Earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on Earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
In peace eternally.
Let there be peace on Earth
And let it begin with me.
