Heavenly Peace Lyrics


This is a song for all the babies in the world,

May you sleep tonight in heavenly peace

In the morning when you wake, may you have the chance to thrive

And one day learn to sing in harmony


This is a song for all the children in the world

may you try to jump high and dive deep

may you learn your lessons well and reach up to the sky

and hear this lullabye when you sleep


Sleep in heavenly peace

Sleep in heavenly peace

May our voices join together all around the world

And may we all live in heavenly peace


This is a song for all the mothers in the world,

Who cradle your baby in your arms

may your children some day leave you and one day soon return

And on their journey stay free from harm


This is a song for all the fathers in the world

May you give your children roots and give them wings

May you take away their worries with the stories that you tell

and give to them a song for them to sing


Sleep in heavenly peace

Sleep in heavenly peace

May our voices join together all around the world

And may we all live in heavenly peace


This is a song for all the leaders of the land

May you find a way for fighting to cease

For Blessed are the peacemakers and blessed is the day

when we all can live in heavenly peace
