Go Now in Peace / Síocháin Libh

This energetic children's recessional hymn about love, joy and peace was written by Irish teachers and musicians Gráinne Jordan and Fil Uí Dhubhghaill.  

It is included in the Music to Honour God's Name music book - and this is the only source of sheet music which has been located.   The song was used in the Alive-O religious education programme.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by Jordan. This has a C (ie 4/4) time signature. In the key of A, the first few notes of the melody are E EE C E A FD E.

Lyrics

In English

Go now in peace together today.
Jesus is here in a very special way.
Tell all you meet that he is gentle and kind.
Praise him and love him in body, soul and mind.

Chorus:
Go in peace! Go in love! Go in joy ev-’ry girl and boy.
Go in peace! Go in love! Go in joy ev-’ry girl and boy.

Bring all the love we’ve had here today.
Share it around, don’t let it fade away.
Love one another as Jesus Christ loves you.
Praise him and love him in everything you do

In Irish

1.Imigh anois i síochain Dé,
Beidh Íosa leat i rith an lae inniú,
Inis do chach go bhfuil se cineálta coir,
Tabhair dó moladh is onóir is glóir.


Síocháin libh. Sonas oraibh, Beannacht libh,
Páistí uile Dé.
Síocháin libh. Sonas oraibh, Beannacht libh,
Páistí uile Dé.

2.Beir leat an gra a fuair tú anseo,
Roinn é go fiall, ná lig dó dul amú.
Tabhair grá dá cheile, mar a ghráigh Íosa tú.
Mol e, gráigh e le gach a ndéanann tú.
