Jesus, Bring Me Peace
Brass Quintet Sheet Music PDF
by Eddie Lewis
Jesus, Bring Me Peace is a brass quintet composition based on a melody that I wrote during the darkest stages of my divorce. The melody is a musical prayer with the lyrics, “Jesus, Jesus, bring me peace, bring me peace.”
We haven’t sold many copies of this composition and I believe it’s probably because I never wanted to share the personal story that goes with it. I wanted to just “sell it” like any other product. But the truth is, this “song” is part of my life story. It’s not just some arbitrary piece of art for arts sake. This melody served a solemn purpose in my life.
Jesus said “ask and you shall receive.” If you pray for the “peace that surpasses all understanding”, then that’s what you get.
So this isn’t just some easy brass quintet composition. It is a musical prayer.
