* The annunciation song "Do Not Be Afraid" features a trio for Mary, Joseph and Gabriel

"Peace on earth." The words have graced millions of cards, prompted countless sermons, and have been uttered by many a homemade angel on a Sunday School Pageant stage. "Peace on earth" is the promise of Christmas. But is it a promise unfulfilled? As we consider the seemingly unbroken history of war on our planet, we might be compelled to agree. But Jesus Christ did not come to establish an earthly peace, but rather, a peace within each earthly heart, by reconciling us to our Heavenly Father. And this is the song of the Bethlehem angels. This is peace on earth.

From the perennial best-selling creative team of Deborah Craig-Claar and Robert Sterling comes this powerful and timely musical from Word Music. Well-known praise songs ("Dwell") and evocative new worship offerings ("Holy Is the Lord" by Regi Stone and David T. Edwards) are combined seamlessly with beloved carols ("Silent Night! Holy Night!," "Good Christians All Rejoice," "Sing We Now of Christmas") to share the story of salvation that Jesus' birth brings. A soaring treatment of the annunciation (a trio for Mary, Joseph and Gabriel), "Do Not Be Afraid," a vibrant "Gloria," and the straight-to-the-heart emotional invitation of "Peace on Earth" are all new original offerings from the songwriting talents of Lowell Alexander, Robert Sterling and Deborah Craig-Claar that are sure to become must-have numbers for Christmas presentations. The centerpiece of the musical is Robert Sterling's elegant contemporary setting of Longfellow's beloved "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," reminding us that "God is not dead nor does He sleep; The wrong shall fail and right prevail with peace on earth, good will to men."

Peace on Earth will offer your congregation and community the renewing joy and prayerful hope that Christmas promises.
