Peace Like a River

This traditional African American spiritual about peace is sometimes used with children. However jazz arrangements have been recorded by a number of artists, and it is definitely not only a children's piece.

The use of water images may make it suitable for situations when an
emphaisis on baptism / waters of life is appropriate.

With meter of 77.11 D, the tune is simply called PEACE LIKE A RIVER.

Lyrics


I’ve got peace like a river,
I’ve got peace like a river,
I’ve got peace like a river in my soul,
I’ve got peace like a river,
I’ve got peace like a river,
I’ve got peace like a river in my soul.

I’ve got love like an ocean,
I’ve got love like an ocean,
I’ve got love like an ocean in my soul,
I’ve got love like an ocean,
I’ve got love like an ocean,
I’ve got love like an ocean in my soul.

I’ve got joy like a fountain,
I’ve got joy like a fountain,
I’ve got joy like a fountain in my soul,
I’ve got joy like a fountain,
I’ve got joy like a fountain,
I’ve got joy like a fountain in my soul.
