Vince Gill has the voice of an angel so every time he sings a gospel tune, our ears are blessed. One of our most beloved praise songs is Vince’s “Go Rest on That Mountain.” Now, we can add one more to our list as the country singer sings what we all want “Let There Be Peace on Earth.”

Vince Gill’s “Let There Be Peace on Earth”

This Vince Gill track may be considered a Christmas song but we hear it all the time. This gospel hymn was written by Jill Jackson-Miller and Sy Miller back in 1955 but the message is still relevant today. It was first heard when Mahalia Jackson sang her version of the song. Then in 1993, Vince Gill recorded his rendition of this song with his daughter, Jenny.

It was a sweet duet between a daughter and father and one that we’ll always remember from Vince. People in churches are encouraged to sing this song regularly as it gives us hope that one day we will all have peace on Earth.

Lyrics Breakdown

Let this be my solemn vow
To take each moment and live
Each moment in peace eternally

One of the reasons why we live in turmoil is because some people are at war with themselves. As the song suggests, we have to take each moment to live happily and peacefully. Having peace here on Earth starts with us because if we are fine with it ourselves, it would be easier to convince other people to change themselves. We all know that real change starts within us and so is peace.

Once we start showing love and acceptance, other people would take notice and see that there is a positive effect on us. If this is done on a bigger platform and with people who have a wider audience, then our long-time dream of attaining peace on Earth will come true.
