Peace In Our Time

December 25, 2008

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
