Song Description

It's a holiday wish for peace on earth, also available as choral sheet music

Story Behind the Song

This was the first song I wrote (lyrics) with gifted choral composer, Jim Papoulis. It is performed by the on-profit Young People's Chorus of NYC which uses music to help improve the lives of under-served children. Rosanne Cash contributed the vocals, and I have assigned my Lyrics rights to benefit YPC.

Lyrics

HOW MANY CHRISTMASES

I heard and loved the stories as a child
I've sung the carols
"Peace on earth" and "mercy mild"

And when I deck my Christmas tree with light
I always stop to wonder
What ... took place that Holy night

How many Christmases will there be
Till we learn to live as one
How many Christmases will we need
Before a new world has begun

When "peace on earth" is truly real
and not just words we've sung

I see a world in trouble, every day
Can we live together, will we find a way
And when I deck my Christmas tree with light
I always stop to wonder
What took place that Holy night

How many Christmases will there be
Till we learn to live as one
How many Christmases will we need
Before a new world has begun
When "peace on earth" is truly real
and not just words we've sung

How many Christmases will there be
Till we learn to live as one
How many Christmases will we need
Before a new world has begun

When "peace on earth" is truly real
and not just words we've sung
How many Christmases?
