from Christine Lavin Presents JUST ONE ANGEL

This is the time for peace on earth
Show me a sign of peace
I offer a prayer for peace on earth
Let this be the time for peace

Bring home the soldiers to fight no more
Bring hope to the orphan boy
Bring homes to New Orleans for the working poor
Bring peace, bring love, bring joy

   Would it be too much to ask for
   Would it be my heart's desire
   If I my first wish was peace this Christmas
   Peace come Christmas day

For a while no violence in Camden town
To each child his favorite toy
Bring food to the hungry or show us how
Bring peace, bring love, bring joy

   Would it be too much to ask for
   Would it be my heart's desire
   If I my first wish was peace this Christmas
   Peace come Christmas day

       It's been a long, long time coming
       But, I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will
