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.

    Peace comes only when you have reconciled yourself with god and your fellowmen ... No matter what, if god is in your heart, you will have peace and you will find rest.

    I loved the way the late great queen of gospel music, albertina walker sang this song one time on a television program. It simplly means to the inhabitants of this planet, abide in perfect harmony among each other. No hate, no prejudice, no confusion, none of that. But you as an individual be the 1rst to show how that can be done by adjusting one's own attitude. "let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me! "

    Peace is having a calm within yourself which comes from knowing god and inviting him to take control of your life. His love abiding in you causes you to spread a positive influence to all. It is making an effect to love the unlovable. Having peace quiets troubled minds and becomes an enviable gift.

    If you have peace within yourself, you can elude peace to everyone and everything in your life. It
    is up to us, ourselves, to make this happen. We are all one, and one we will all be.
