A Time For Peace Christmas Song

A Time For Peace

Year: 1978

Written By: Erik Robertson, Greg Adams

'A Time For Peace' was written by the songwriting pair of Erik Robertson and Greg Adams who produced several songs for Roger Whittaker. It showcases the singer's easy going style and is impressively backed up by some lush orchestral arrangements.

Gazing at the artwork for the 1978 'The Roger Whittaker Christmas Album', which contained 'A Time For Peace', you can't help but acknowledge that Roger Whittaker was really a good sport given the amount of fake snow that he was forced to wear. His particularly wide-lensed spectacles (which were de-rigueur at the time) probably helped reduce the itchy irritation but it's obvious that this man loved Christmas enough to immerse himself completely in character each December.

'A Time For Peace' has not been recorded by any other artists of note over the years.

 

 

A Time For Peace Lyrics

Snowflakes fall gently down
We walk on to the distant sound
Christmas carols on the wind
Then Christmas feelings come again
Strangers smile a warm: "Hello"
Angels in the virgin snow
Children gather in the square
The Christmas feelings people share

A time for peace - a special time,
In the hope we may find
Deep within every heart,
The love that very special kind
A love to carry us along,
To carry it be on
Christmas and the love that it gives,
The soul of every Christmas song

Christmas rocks us gently now,
More then just a dream somehow
May that feeling never end,
This Christmas feeling come again

A time for peace - a special time,
In the hope we may find
Deep within every heart,
The love that very special kind
A love to carry us along,
To carry it be on
Christmas and the love that it gives,
The soul of every Christmas song

A time for peace - a special time,
In the hope we may find
Deep within every heart,
The love that very special kind
