There’s light in the world each Christmas

There’s peace and there’s love in each heart

If people can do this at Christmas

Why can’t this just be the start?

Be the start of another beginning

When love is the law of the land

There’s light in the world at Christmas

When the lion lies down with the lamb.


Chorus:

Peace in the world - let there be light

Peace in the world - beautiful sight

Oh Lord - let there - be peace in the world!


Outside I hear voices calling

Soft as the footsteps in snow

From the sky the snowflakes are falling

There’s peace in the valley below

Below where the hearts of good people

Are singing a song hand in hand

There’s light in the world at Christmas

And it shines on each women and man.



Chorus:

Peace in the world - let there be light

Peace in the world - beautiful sight

Oh Lord! - let there - be peace in the world!


Peace in the World
