Peace On Earth

Peace on earth, with a world at war?

Oh, what were the angels singing for

That faraway night when the Star shown down

With a glorious light on Bethlehem’s town?


Peace on earth!  They were singing of Him.

Who was born to forgive and redeem from sin,

Who still has the power to cleanse within

The contrite heart who is willing to bend.


Peace on earth, amid sorrow and loss?

Yes, peace indeed, at the foot of the cross!

Peace in a world that is troubled and torn,

Peace in each heart where the Saviour is born.


Peace on earth, while the nations rage

And history is making its darkest page?

Yes, peace on earth, for its steadfast light

Is burning in thousands of hearts tonight!

– A.H.M.
