Peace Camp Music: A Note from Steve & Leslie

Due to the number of inquiries about the songs sung during Peace Camp, Steve and Leslie put together the following list. It includes sources of all the contemporary pieces, with links to websites, etc, and also the lyrics of the three original “doxologies” that were written and used during the week.

Original Songs

Children of God
Fifteen Minutes
Just Fine
One Great Hour to Share
One Of These Mornings
The Dove

You can find more about these (and purchase recordings for most of them) at www.leslieandsteve.com.

If you have other requests related to these songs, feel free to write and ask! You can reach Steve and Leslie by email at: sgretz@rochester.rr.com.


Doxology during evening service in which we memorialized old friends:

Praise God for faithful, loving friends
Whose legacy on us depends
We pray for strength, to carry on
Their work for peace, now that they’re gone

Two “morning” doxologies:

Awake, my soul, the new day’s sun
Calls us, a nobler race to run
Shake off regret, and joyful rise,
Embracing freely love’s surprise


I open up myself to you
Refreshing as the morning dew
May Spirit guide my heart and mind
And help me, loving words to find

They have compiled a collection of 74 of these New Hundredths in a recently published book, that is available for $20 (which includes shipping).

Traditional, Old-Time Songs and Hymns

A Beautiful Life
Angel Band
Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing
Driftin’ Too Far From the Shore
Farther Along
I’ll Fly Away
I’ll Not Be A Stranger
Keep On The Sunny Side
Life’s Railway to Heaven
Make a Joyful Noise Unto The Lord
Sunshine In The Shadows
When I Survey The Wondrous Cross
You Don’t Love God If You Don’t Love Your Neighbor
You Go To Your Church And I’ll Go To Mine
