Song title superimposed on a picture of the End of the World Lighthouse:    1  I’ll be with you to the end of the world, I’ll be near you, I will love you. If you need me only call, And I’ll be there by your side and I’ll bring peace, peace, peace Yes, I’ll bring peace, peace peace I’ll bring you peace, peace, peace, Peace unto you. 2  I will love you to the end of your days; I’ll be near you, I’ll watch o’er you, And when sorrows overwhelm you only call me, I’ll be there. and I’ll bring peace, peace, peace, yes, I’ll bring peace, peace peace,I’ll bring you peace, peace, peace, peace unto you.  3  And when death comes at the end of the world I’ll be near you, you’ll be near me. And you’ll see me and you’ll touch me and you’ll be here by my side And there’ll be peace peace peace and there’ll be peace, peace, peace yes, there’ll be peace, peace, peace peace unto you.
This hymn about God's faithfulness and presence bringing peace was written by British teacher Peter Watcyn-Jones (b 1944).

It addresses several themes - and the third verse makes it particularly suitable for funerals.

It was published in the 1989 edition of Hymns Old and New by Kevin Mayhew Ltd, and in the 20th Century Folk Hymnal volume 4, 1977 which lists the copyright owner as Oxford University Press of Nairobi.   Both of these books are now out of print, but used copies are sometimes available, and they are the best source of the sheet music for it.

The song is set to an unnamed tune, also by Watcyn-Jones. This has a 3/4 time signature. In the key of F, the first few notes are F G A_ A_ F G A B c A, with accompanying chords C7 / F / F root Ebass / Dm

Lyrics

I’ll be with you to the end of the world,
I’ll be near you, I will love you.
If you need me only call,
And I’ll be there by your side
And I’ll bring peace, peace, peace
Yes, I’ll bring peace, peace peace
I’ll bring you peace, peace, peace,
Peace unto you.

I will love you to the end of your days;
I’ll be near you, I’ll watch o’er you,
And when sorrows overwhelm you
Only call me, I’ll be there.
And I’ll bring peace, peace, peace,
Yes, I’ll bring peace, peace peace,I’ll bring you peace, peace, peace,
Peace unto you

And when death comes at the end of the world
I’ll be near you, you’ll be near me.
And you’ll see me and you’ll touch me
And you’ll be here by my side
And there’ll be peace peace peace
And there’ll be peace, peace, peace
Yes, there’ll be peace, peace, peace
Peace unto you.
