SATB/piano - traditional African American spiritual - arr. Peter Amidon

In Amidons' book and CD "Twenty-five Anthems for Interfaith & Community Choirs". Starry Mountain Singers sing this on the recording with Emily Miller, soloist. You get both piano/SATB score and vocal score pdfs.  You can sing this a cappella by using the four part harmonization at the end of the arrangement for all of the verses. The vocal score has the whole song in the four part harmonies. Here are some gospel singers who take it in a different direction with this joyful performance of the spiritual.

LYRICS

Peace Like a River
traditional

I've got peace like a river,
I've got peace like a river,
I've got peace like a river in my soul.
I've got peace like a river,
I've got peace like a river,
I've got peace like a river in my soul.

I've got love like a river,
I've got love like a river,
I've got love like a river in my soul.
I've got love like a river,
I've got love like a river,
I've got love like a river in my soul

I've got joy like a river,
I've got joy like a river,
I've got joy like a river in my soul.
I've got joy like a river,
I've got joy like a river,
I've got joy like a river in my soul.
