This song, Let There Be Peace On Earth, has been rolling around in my head all month. I’m thinking I might send it out as a Christmas card, along with the Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi. These are troubling times.
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 our creator, children all are we.
Let us walk with each other 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.
-Sy Miller and Jill Jackson
