Sing Peace, Sing Gift of Peace presents all the original hymn texts as well as the translations of Slovak and German hymns and carols by Jaroslav J. Vajda. The book begins with a foreword by Carl F. Schalk and an essay on 'The Making of a Hymn' by Jaroslav Vajda. The 225 texts are presented together with background information and commentary by the writer, and comprehensive indices are also included.

The most well-known of Rev. Dr. Vajda's hymns include 'Now the Silence, Now the Peace,' 'Greet Now the Swiftly Changing Year,' 'Go, My Children, with My Blessing,' and 'God of the Sparrow.'

'The hymns, carols, and translations of Jaroslav Vajda are a sign to God's people, a sign of hopefulness, expectation, and promise. They are a sign that the Holy Spirit has not forsaken His Church. They are a sign that we are still given new songs to sing—songs which the Church will surely continue to sing until the time when all our singing will be joined to that last and greatest song of the Lamb in eternity. For such a sign in the work of Jaroslav Vajda, the Church is eternally grateful.' —Carl F. Schalk
