Let There Be Peace on Earth

When I first joined Bloggers For Peace a certain                                                                 hymn from my childhood startedimages vibrating in my mind. With the Catholic and Christian Holy Week beginning tomorrow, I felt this would be the perfect time to present this mantra of peace and love. This hymn, Let There Be Peace on Earth, is a perfect example of the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, who preached only peace and love. There is no fighting, there is no violence, there is no war, there is no acting out of anger nor hatred in the name of Jesus Christ, nor in the name of God, whoever God is for each of us. To live a life through Jesus Christ, through Krishna, through Buddha, through God, through the Divine, or through Mother Earth, is to live as a Spiritual Being. Spiritual Living is living through compassion, love, and peace.

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every breath I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment 
And live each moment 
With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.

The Prayer of Saint Francis, another hymn of love and peace.

    I really like that you revere and appreciate both eastern and western religious traditions. Few people do that! Keep up the great posts. 🙂

    so many wonderful sites…this is another one….do you have any articles on the English Christian monk , Bede Griffiths a very profound figure in inter-faith?

  4. there is no prayer that i find more touching than that of St. Francis – hangs on my dressing table – when people fight over God – we all have done down the ages – such a crying shame – i know one thing for certain – feel it in my guts – the great God feels pain – can you imagine such a supreme all powerful being ever subject to pain? ya thats when tears appear in his eyes for it is done in his name – how foolish, how shameful??

    • Yes, Indrajit, thank you. I used to have the Prayer of St. Francis hanging by the front door of my previous home. Now it always hangs in my heart. 😉

      • how wonderful – i visited his cathedral – and like him i love an animal’s response – even if only a fish – there is so much love around – people only have to try to see – im so glad that i have found a community of thinkers here at wordpress so different from elsewhere – god bless.

    This song resonates with my childhood as well, Julianne. It is in our hearts, let us make it a reality. I would alter the song a bit–Brothers and Sisters all are we. {{{hugs}}} Kozo

  6. May it be so, and yes, may it begin with me.
