Story Behind the Song

Written for Christmas 1999, at the turn of the new Millennium, this song was intended as a statement of thanksgiving for the past, faith for the present, and hope for the future. The incarnation, life, death and reseurection of Jesus are the reasons why peace is more than just a dream - it can be found in Him.


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
A fountain of grace still flows
And the voice of God whispers into our hearts once more

Unto us a child is born
Unto us a son is given
He'll be called Wonderful Counsellor
Mighty God, Eternal Father
Prince of Peace
