Christmas can be a wonderfully joyful time. But it can also be a really tough time for many people. As families gather, friendships reunite and as we look back to the past year, a whole host of emotions come to the forefront.

This song was written with that in mind. A prayer that those struggling might find joy in this season in the same way that others are able to.

Written for an advent reflection for a small group we’re a part of, I hadn’t planned on doing anything with it, but decided to record a rough version on the off chance that someone might find peace from it. Recorded live, with no overdubs, it’s pretty rough. But isn’t life?

Lyrics

CCLI Number: 7122967

I pray that you’ll find peace this Christmas
Hopefulness with every shining light
I pray that you’ll find joy in giving
And freedom underneath the star filled sky
I pray

For every heart who has lost something this year
For every girl and boy who has something to fear
For every head without a bed to rest upon
For everyone I pray that you’ll find peace this year

I pray that you’ll find peace this Christmas
Feel at home with everyone you meet
I pray that you’ll find warmth and laughter
In every conversation on the street

For every one feeling the stress of what’s to come
For every soul without a friend to cheer them on
For every single mum trying to make it on her own
For every one I pray you’ll find peace this year
