Grace and Peace to You

words and music by Greg Scheer
text based on Romans 1:1-7
copyright 1999

Paul's simple, yet profound, greeting to the church in Rome is the inspiration for this song. It could be used effectively as a gathering song, a benediction or during the passing of the peace. The MP3 demo shows one way to segue between the two keys that allows a soloist to introduce the song in a higher key and the congregation to join in the lower key.

This song also appears in the hymnal Singing the New Testament.

Grace and peace to you
from our Father, God,
and from our Lord, Jesus Christ,
who has called us in love.
Grace and peace to you;
Grace and peace to you.
