Music: (May There Be) Peace on Earth This Christmas

We sang this song at midnight mass Saturday night.  It's pretty much a standard at our midnight mass.  We don't sing it with the jazzy flair of this recording.  Ours is much simpler.  But the words are absolutely gorgeous and epitomize the blessings I have for everyone at Christmastime...and throughout the year.  Enjoy!

May there be peace on earth this Christmas
And may the bells of joy ring loud and clear.
May your dreams of love for each other
Come true and live from year to year.

May there be peace on earth this Christmas.
And when the evening shadows fall,
Let us ask God when we pray for a lasting peace that day
When the world would get the greatest Gift of all.
