The Lyrics to Let There Be Peace on Earth
2/25/2003

On this past tour, Carlos and the Band have been closing the shows with a message of peace. The song, originally written by Sy Miller & Jill Jackson, is entitled "Let There Be Peace On Earth" but has appeared on the set list as "The Peace Song". Carlos originally heard it in a church outside of San Francisco. It is our pleasure to share the lyrics with you!

"Let There Be Peace On Earth"
by Sy Miller & Jill Jackson

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 presence, family all are we.
Let us walk with each other in perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me, let this be the moment now.
With every step I take, let this be my solemn vow;
To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally.

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
