Let There Be Peace

  • Let there be peace
    Peace to every nation
    Let there be hope
    For all the world to see
    Let there be love
    And joy to all the children
    Let there be peace on earth
    For you and me

    If I had one wish
    On my Christmas list
    It wouldn't be for presents under my tree
    There'll be
    No more tears for crying
    No more wars for fighting
    And every mother's child would have enough to eat

    So when I get down on my knees to pray
    I ask the Lord above to light the way

    And let there be peace (peace)
    Peace to every nation
    Let there be hope (hope)
    For all the world to see
    Let there be love (love)
    And joy to all the children
    Let there be peace on earth
    For you and me, yeah

    When I look in the mirror
    All I wanna see
    Is true compassion looking back at me
    I wanna, I wanna love my neighbor
    And be the hands and feet of Jesus
    Take His love to the least of these

    All I'm asking is to be the change
    When I get down on my knees, I say

    Let there be peace (peace)
    Peace to every nation
    Let there be hope (hope)
    For all the world to see
    Let there be love (love)
    And joy to all the children
    Let there be peace on earth
    For you and me

    Let there be peace (peace)
    Let there be love (love)
    Let there be joy (joy)
    For you and me

    Let there be peace (peace)
    Let there be love (love)
    Let there be joy (joy)
    For you and me
    For you and me

    Oh, oh, oh

    Let there be peace
    Peace to every nation
    Let there be hope (hope)
    For all the world to see
    Let there be love (love)
    And joy to all the children
    Let there be peace on earth
    For you and me, yeah

    (Peace, peace to every nation)
    Let there be hope (hope)
    For all the world to see
    Let there be love (love)
    And joy to all the children
    Let there be peace on earth
    For you and me, yeah
    (Peace on earth)
    For you and me

    Let there be peace on earth
    For you and me
