Lyrics

Peace, heavenly peace
Rests on Judah this night
Peace foretold through the ages
Promised peace from on high
A hush falls o’er the hills
Silent and still are Bethlehem’s streets
For Christ is born, blessed Savior
Bringing peace, peace, peace

Peace, heavenly peace
Rests this night on the world
Peace descends as the shepherds
Keep their watch in the field
A song, fervent as prayer, is borne on the air
as Bethlehem sleeps
For angels bright with God’s glory
Sing of peace, peace, peace

Peace, heavenly peace
Rests on men at His birth
Peace beyond understanding
Gift of God to the earth
Peace shines in our hearts
Bright as the star that shines in the east
To guide us all as we seek
the Prince of Peace, peace, peace

    What a beautiful song! I see the sheet music for a women’s solo but where can I find the sheet music for a MALE solo of Peace, Peace, Peace? Or Tenor/Bass version?
    Thank you for all your inspiring music!

      Hmmm… I’m not sure I understand your question. The solo can be sung by a male or female vocalist–it’s not intended for one or the other. ??

    I merely sing in a ward choir in Georgia and have no great voice. Nevertheless, I am so grateful to be able to begin the Sabbath rehearsing and performing the music our director often chooses from your offerings. As I wrote in my journal a moment ago, “As usual this Sunday morning, we went to our choir practice at 10:00 AM under the direction of Sis. Karen Thompson. We’re working on a couple of new songs, “Peace, Peace, Peace” for Christmas and another about families. She picks such beautiful music to sing. I sometimes get a lump in my throat contemplating the wonderful messages coupled with the lilting melodies, many by the gifted Latter-day Saint composer/arranger, Sally DeFord. Singing these marvelous hymns is a great way to start the Sabbath.”

    Your music makes our choir sound like angels are singing. Thank you, thank you, for sharing your inspired talents!

    Sally, I am so grateful to you for the music you share with all of us. Your music is so beautiful and inspired and always brings tears to my eyes; these arrangements and original compositions enable me to feel the spirit so strongly testify of the love our Father has for us. Thank you for being a wonderful instrument in His hands! What an amazing talent you have. I wish I knew you personally.

      Not all of the recordings have been uploaded to the new site yet. Most of them will be back eventually. 🙂
