7 December


the second candle of advent is lit for peace

may the hush of peace

settle over our world this season

may you feel it 

and hear it

and see it

and carry it in your heart

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

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

this song was written in 1955

by husband and wife

Sy Miller and Jill Jackson

first performed at a retreat in California

for a group of young people 

who were from a wide variety of religious, ethnic and socioeconomic backrounds

after the retreat these people came down off the mountain

and spread this song every where they went


  1. simple message
    but a great one
    To live this way is to have found peace

  2. That is one of my favorite hymns. I love it when everyone sings this together in church, singing loud and clear. Beautiful.

  3. Yes, let us all carry that thought in our hearts, all year round.

    Happy Holidays to you and all the best in the New Year.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
