Let There Be Peace on Earth

Origin and History | Let There Be Peace on Earth Lyrics | Youtube Video | Music Sheets


As any decent human being, it is always our every wish to live in a peaceful community, country and if possible, a peaceful world altogether. What kind of person would really wish otherwise? But as human beings, it is painfully a sad reality that cruelty sometimes prevails over our peaceful nature because of jealousy and greed driven by the inescapable bondage of sin. To the point that we have given up on the idea of “peace on earth” and have diminished this ideology to a mere cliché that beauty pageant contestants say during the question and answer portion before the coronation.

Origin of The Let There Be Peace on Earth

The song was written by a husband and wife, Sy Miller and Jill Jackson, just dreaming of having a peaceful world for all human beings and they believe each one of us could help make this a reality with God as our driving force.

The first people who sang the song were decisively from diverse races, religions, and economic backgrounds that were brought together so that people would know that it is really not important who you are, where you are from or what you believe in as long as you live in this beautiful world helping to make a strong bond with one another. The purpose of which was to show that true happiness in life can only be attained when you realize that the world that you live in is full of love, understanding and acceptance for one another.

Let There Be Peace On Earth Lyrics

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 ev'ry breath 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!
