Mark Hayes has crafted a compelling anthem that calls us to be the peace the world needs. After the beautifully melodic A section, he uses the word "peace" in 20 foreign languages juxtaposed against a countermelody that states emphatically, "Peace is not a dream. It can be achieved one person at a time." After the return of the final inspiring chorus, the piece ends with the quiet heartfelt promise, "I will be that peace." This anthem is perfect for school, community, and church choirs and is particularly appropriate for concerts and services about peace and justice.
