about

I wrote this song with my Producer Troy Welstad in Portland. It is timely today with all the strife and trouble throughout the world. I think every year during the holiday season we are reminded that there is good news of great joy and that hope is not lost. It's truly a magical time of year, for young and old, across all cultures. I think we tapped into a little bit of that magic with this new track. The song is a voice of hope rising from the din of distress and injustice, with a LOUD voice, proclaiming together, Peace on Earth! Good Will Toward Men!

lyrics

It's a wise man's call, calling for peace on earth
And a clumsy fall, falling for peace on earth
And the children play - an innocent reminder
For the ones who wait, waiting for peace on earth

A Star shining bright for the World - Good Tidings of Our Great Joy

Come and listen, the story of peace on earth
There's a fresh wind blowing, calling for peace on earth
As the whole earth waits, you can still hear the angels shout
Raising hopeful voice, calling for peace on earth
Peace on earth

It's the song we sing, singing for peace on earth
And the loud bells ring, ringing for peace on earth
And the ancient sound - a song for a Newborn King
And the ones here now, waiting for peace on earth

A Star shining bright for the World - Good Tidings of Our Great Joy

Come and listen, the story of peace on earth
There's a fresh wind blowing, calling for peace on earth
As the whole earth waits, you can still hear the angels shout
Raising hopeful voice, calling for peace on earth

Whoah, oh oh, in the quiet here now
Lay your worries down!
Lay your troubles down!
There is peace here!
Right now!

Come and listen, the story of peace on earth
There's a fresh wind blowing, calling for peace on earth
As the whole earth waits, you can still hear the angels shout
Raising hopeful voice, calling for peace on earth

Peace on earth
