Christian Songs About Peace for World Peace Day

Songs to help celebrate the International Day of Peace


The International Day of Peace (or World Peace Day), is celebrated annually on September 21st. The day is dedicated to peace on earth, or specifically the absence of war and is observed by many nations. The day was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the UN General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982.

In 2002 the General Assembly officially declared September 21 as the permanent date for the International Day of Peace.

Jesus himself spoke of peace in John 14:27 when he said, "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful."

These songs are all wonderful for a soundtrack for peace for World Peace Day or any other day of the year.

Let me bear your load
Cause ' will give you perfect peace

"River Of Peace" - Bob Carlisle

Bob Carlisle - Nothing But The Truth

Ours is just to live and try,
To settle for the answer

Until we see you face to face
In another time and place
Where the river of your peace
Runs free.

You are my prince of peace and I will live my life for you.

It's not too late to find us.
One day we may be in peace.
