Original Song – “Peace Be With You”

Peace Be With You is a gentle, prayerful song intended as a blessing to myself and to others, reminding us of God’s desire to grant us His direction, guidance, blessings, protection, will, plan and peace for our lives.  As we walk this dusty path called life from beginning to end, Jesus offers us His love through grace to bless our lives and bestow on us His gifts – for our benefit, and the benefit of all those who we extend His love to. Ours is a small world that we live in today, and you may just find that the love of Christ working in and through you will touch hearts around the world, “He will take your life where it should go, And He won’t let go, Or let you fall, For the hands of Christ, Can hold all the world, And even you…Peace be with you, Through the Lord, Amen…”

I recorded my original song “Peace Be With You” on Set 13 in 1997, and it personalizes the words Jesus left us with, “Peace be with you.” May God’s peace be with you all! Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
