Peace Child

"Peace Child" was written originally for Christmas, at the turning point of the Millennium. Released on FW4, "Rising Generation", at the beginning of 2001, the song has been widely used by many churches and schools at Christmas, along with the stunning animated video that accompanies the song. The video is available on DVD, and on an interactive CD Rom.

Christmas cards based on the video are also available, either on their own, or with an interactive CD Rom that includes the song, backing track, video, and a fun section for children. You can order the cards, CD and video from our secure online shop

Lyrics

Who could have dared to dream it
Who would have dared to hope
That the author of creation
Should become as one of us
The God who is everywhere chose to be confined
To a moment in history
The birth of a child
And an ocean of love poured out
A fountain of grace sprang up
And the voice of God could be heard in a baby’s cry

Come to the Peace Child
Let him still your soul
He was the only one
Who could bring hope to this world
As the centuries have passed
And our search for peace goes on
It’s still to be found in the heart of a child


And as we mark each New Year
We give thanks for the past
For we know our God is faithful
He is worthy of our trust
And through the world’s suffering
Through all the pain
He knows what it feels like
He knew it as a man
And an ocean of love is ours
And a fountain of grace still flows
And the voice of God whispers into our hearts once more

Bridge:
Unto us a child is born
Unto us a Son is given
And he’ll be called
Wonderful counsellor
Mighty God
Eternal Father
Prince of Peace
