A Canticle for Advent: Peace Peace

'THE NATIVITY' BY NOEL COYPEL

Peace, peace peace on earth
And goodwill to all
This is the time for joy
This is the time for love
Now let us all sing together
Of peace, peace peace on earth

Silent Night, Holy Night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Peace Peace and Silent Night (with a  Japanese verse)

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Luke 2:14

There is something of heaven in the blending of voices of all ages, singing in a candle-lit Christmas Eve service, telling the old old story once again.  It was like this for us at the Chapel tonight.
This is a time for joy, this is a time for love.
Now let us all sing together of peace,
peace,
peace on earth.

And let it begin with me.
