Subject: Lyr Add: SONG OF PEACE (FINLANDIA)
From: _gargoyle
Date: 15 Dec 99 - 10:34 PM

Fred Small has a song by the title "peace is"

However, this is the only song of "Peace" that I show for Bill Staines.

Bill Staines on the One More River Album

SONG OF PEACE (FINLANDIA)
(Jean Sibelius, music - Lloyd Stone, words)
© 1934, Lorenz Publishing Co.

This is my song, oh people of all nations,
A song of peace for lands afar and mine.
This is my home, my country where my heart is,
Here are my hopes, my dreams, my truest shrine,
But other hearts in other lands are beating,
With hopes and dreams as high and true as mine

My country's skies are bluer than the ocean,
And sunlight falls on clover leaf and pine.
But the other lands have sunlight too, and clover,
And skies are everywhere as blue as mine.
So Hear this song you people of all nations,
This song of peace for other lands and mine.
This song of peace for other lands and mine.

I think "Peace is.." is by Tom Paxton. I have the words at home; if I can find them I'll try to get them here tonight, before or after we decorate the tree!

I know you need it quick, so here's that Paxton song.

PEACE WILL COME
(Tom Paxton)

Peace
Peace will
Peace will come.
Let it begin with me.

We
We need
We need peace.
Let it begin with me.

    REFRAIN
    Oh, my own life
    Is all I can hope to control.
    Let my life be lived
    For the good, good of my soul.
    Let it bring peace,
    Sweet peace.
    Peace will come.
    Let it begin with me.

Peace
Peace will
Peace will come.
Let it begin with me.

    REFRAIN

"Peace is..." is definitely Fred Small. I've probably got them in liner notes, but I don't have time to look them out now-gotta go to Open Circle at The Mermaid. The chorus starts

Peace is (clap, clap) the bread we break!

Love is (clap, clap)

Why am I straining my brain-it's in Rise Up Singing, page 163. Email me if you're still stuck, at Marymac90@AOL.com

Good luck with your service, Mary

PEACE IS
(Fred Small ©1983, Pine Barrens Music, BMI)


Feel the cool breeze blowing through the smoke and the heat
Hear the gentle voices and the marching feet
Singing call back the fire, draw the missiles down
And we'll call this earth our home
CHORUS:
Peace is the bread we break
Love is the river rolling
Life is a chance we take
When we make this earth our home
Gonna make this earth our home.
We have known the atom, the power and pain
We've seen people fall beneath the killing rain
If the mind still reasons and the soul remains
It shall never be again.
Chorus

Peace grows from a tiny seed
As the acorn grows from the tallest tree
Many years ago I heard a soldier say
"When people want peace, better get out of the way."
Chorus

D -G D / F#m - G A / Bm A G F#m / Em - A -

Chorus:
G D G D / G D G A / G D G D / Em - A - / G A D -
