Song background:

This SATB choral selection by Vivian Layne works with piano or organ accompaniment. Four measures of gentle intro prepare the voices to sing  gently rising and falling melody and harmonies which swell toward the exclamation that "the Son of God is born!"  Describing the  humble circumstance,  lovely angelic strains of goodwill at His birth, and conclude with His teachings of how to live in harmony, this is a simple to intermediate level Christmas expression of His glory and the peace He offers.  Peace was written specifically for a church choir Christmas program.

Lyrics: 1. On this night so long ago, a calm, gentle peace lay.
Shepherds from afar, gazing at the star in wonder and amazement humbly knelt.
"The Son of God is born! The Son of God is born!"
2. As the gleaming star it's light cast round about the stable,
soft angelic strains swelled and filled the earth with words of joy, goodwill to all the world.
"The Son of God is born! The Son of God is born!"
3. Humble as it was this reverenced place brought us a Savior!
Christ the King would grow, teach the world of Love, a way to live with grace in harmony.
"The Son of God is born! The Son of God is born!" Glory, glory! Glory be to God!
And on earth, peace, peace.
