Let There Be Peace Song Lyrics:

Let there be peace
Peace to every nation
Let there be hope
For all the world to see
Let there be love
And joy to all the children
Let there be peace on earth
For you and me

If I had one wish
On my Christmas list
It wouldn’t be for presents under my tree
There’d be
No more tears for crying
No more wars for fighting
And every mother’s child would have enough to eat

So when I get down on my knees to pray
I ask the Lord above to light the way

Let there be peace
Peace to every nation
Let there be hope
For all the world to see
Let there be love
And joy to all the children
Let there be peace on earth
For you and me

When I look in the mirror
All I want to see
Is true compassion looking back at me
I wanna, I wanna love my neighbor
And be the hands and feet
Of Jesus
Take His love
To the least of these

All I’m asking is to be the change
When I get down on my knees I say

Let there be peace
Peace to every nation
Let there be hope
For all the world to see
Let there be love
And joy to all the children
Let there be peace on earth
For you and me

Let there be peace
Let there be love
Let there be joy
For you and me

Let there be peace
Let there be love
Let there be joy
For you and me
For you and me

Oh…

Let there be peace
Peace to every nation
Let there be hope
For all the world to see
Let there be love
And joy to all the children
Let there be peace on earth
For you and me

Yeah (Peace, peace to every nation)
Let there be hope
For all the world to see
Let there be love
And joy to all the children
Let there be peace on earth
For you and me
(Peace on earth)
For you and me

Let there be peace on earth
For you and me

Let There Be Peace Song Meaning:

Let There Be Peace was written by Carrie Underwood, alongside longtime collaborators Brett James and David Garcia. The song shares a message of hope. Underwood stated in a press release that “it’s more important than ever to focus on the true meaning of Christmas in a project like this.  Even though it has been a tough year for all of us, sometimes I feel like the greatest realizations can be inspired by the most difficult times, and make us more grateful for the things we do have and for what truly matters.” The song shares a message of hope in a time where we all need it.
