Additional Lyrics by Peter Link

Finally, my brethren, farewell.
Be perfect,
Be of good comfort,
Be of one mind,
Live in peace;
And the God of love and peace shall be with you.

Till we all come in the unity of the faith,
And of the knowledge of the Son of God,
Unto a perfect man,
Unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

So finally, dear brethren, farewell.
Be perfect,
Be of good comfort,
Be of one mind,
Live in peace;
And the God of love and peace shall be with you.

Till we all come in the glory of one another,
And of the knowledge that we all are one.
So let the love pour forth
To all your brothers and your sisters in the family of God.

Now finally, good brethren, farewell
Live in peace
Then we will all be of one mind together
If we be in peace
then the God of peace shall be with you

Amen

“I love this simple and hearty Fare-thee-well Song that came through me on the way to you. Essentially, it’s a ‘closer.’ Use it, sing it, enjoy it at the end of your church picnic, a campfire, your business meeting, your lecture–and for the adventuresome, perhaps replace the closing hymn with it in your Sunday service and have your soloist lead the congregation in a fond farewell.

“It’s message is universal – “Be perfect, Be of good comfort, Be of one mind, Live In Peace!” —Peter Link, Composer

====================================================

“Life has been jam-packed. I believe it is for most everyone these days. My “jam-packed” is filled with music projects, deadlines, rehearsals and all things Watchfire Music, while currently recording my newest album. It’s a sacred CD that will also offer digital sheet music for many of the songs so that they may be performed in local churches and inspirational events around the globe. It’s been several years since I recorded a CD of specifically sacred-centered or church-focused music. This sacred music is my foundation, though, from which all other music and projects spring. It’s a total joy to work on this. It’s home.

As part of my preparation for the CD, lately I’ve been going on rehearsal-walks: I take my iPod and ear buds and head out to the nearby park. I walk several miles and dive deep into the music tracks—living the lyrics, feeling the harmonies, and walking the rhythms. I dream the stories in each song.

Last evening, I went on a rehearsal-walk with the song I am recording this weekend. As I looked out at the green expanse and calm water beneath the benign spring sky, there were only St. Paul’s ancient words and this new music coursing through my soul, coaxing me to simply “Live in Peace.”

Oh! And St. Paul, as he sang his song to me, winked and laughed in my imagination with a joy and wisdom that I can only hope to sing back to him and to all who will be listening later on!”  —Julia Wade, Recording Artist (from her blog, Inspiratus)

One more thought from Julia:

“For all you adventuresome soloists, I have sung this song in church for the solo before the sermon—and people loved it!  Consider the idea that instead of saying “Goodbye” in the first line, you are actually asking your brothers and sisters to simply BE well! A beautiful idea for a solo!”
