Jimmy Carter's Hymn Choice for Mrs. Carter's Service: Let There Be Peace On Earth & Let It Begin With Me

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me;
Let there be peace on earth,
The peace that was meant to be.

With God as our Father
Brothers all are we,
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me,
Let this be the moment now;
With every step I take,
Let this be my solemn vow:

To take each moment and live each moment
In peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.


Thank you Mr. Carter.

So moving, so full of love. I got teary-eyed.

I feel so bad for him, having to go on without her. Hopefully he'll be back in her arms again before too long, lonely no more. I didn't realize til her passing, how deep and profound and lasting their love story was.

It is a wonderful hymn and I am glad the Carter family included it. RIP Rosalynn, your husband is the first person I ever voted for and you were alway at his side.
