Peace (I'll be With You to the End of the World)

This is a hymn about God's faithfulness and presence bringing peace.  It addresses several themes - and the third verse makes it particularly suitable for funerals.

It was was written by British teacher Peter Watcyn-Jones (b 1944), and as published in the 1989 edition of Hymns Old and New by Kevin Mayhew Ltd, and in the 20th Century Folk Hymnal volume 4, 1977.  The latter 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 only-know of the sheet music for this song.

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

I’ll be near you, I will love you.
If you need me only call,
