Peace In Our Time


The days are short, the dark nights long
But peace is bright and clear as song
The path is rough, the road is hard
Peace means more than a holiday card

Noël, Noël, Noël
Sing Peace and Noël!

Peace is just a short word, easy to say
But it’s so hard to find when you don’t know the way
I don’t want presents, or even heaps of snow
Peace is more important than any gift I know

Noël, Noël, Noël
Sing Peace and Noël!

I want peace for you and peace for me
Peace is for everyone, I hope you agree
For we were born, our mothers gave us birth
So we can bring peace to every child on Earth

Noël, Noël, Noël
Sing Peace and Noël!

– Abra Bennett, 2006, a song written for a children’s choir to sing

    Noel Noel! May 2009 bring peace and love to us all! Miss you and am thankful for your blog as a way of staying connected. Give my love to Shel! with love, Lee

    I used to become teary-eyed when I’d sing “Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me…” Although I try not to get choked up when singing – it distorts the melody – the sentiment and depth are the same. Thank you for sharing a lovely song with us, and thank you for sharing you life and times with us. May 2009 be prosperous, joyous, peaceful and healthful for you and Shel.

    This is absolutely beautiful — and speaks to who you profess to be, how you live your life, and who you are! May your year be filled with peace in all you do.

    Love and Hugs – Diana
