John W. Peterson

Growing up there was music that I heard in church and on recordings, and even participated in cantatas that was this side of heaven. Over and over again, it was the music of John W. Peterson.

John W. Peterson

John W. Peterson is a songwriter who was a major influence on evangelical Christian music in the 1950’s through the 1970’s. He wrote over 1000 songs, and 35 cantatas.

Some of the more popular song titles include “It Took a Miracle”, “Over the Sunset Mountains”, and “Surely Goodness and Mercy”. His cantatas include Night of Miracles and Down From His Glory.

For years now I thought his music should be easy to buy and not have to rely on these old cassettes that I have. His music has been impossible to find. So, I have tried to record from the old cassettes to my PC to transfer to CD. It’s been a hard process, as this kind of thing doesn’t come easy for me.

Now in my search for information about this man, I have discovered in Wikipedia that he now has his own website and has teamed up with his grandson making more music.

Here is a complete list of his music:

    Hi Barb

    I happened to find your blog while I was searching for John W. Peterson’s music.
    My church is to prepare for Christmas cantata with one of his albums, “A special kind of love: A Christmas Musical (1983).” However, it is hard to find.
    So, let me ask you this.
    If you have this album in any format, is there any way that I can get a copy?

    I look forward to your reply.

    Thanks and peace.


  5. Del Hart says:

    I am looking for the Peterson cantata of Wise men still seek him. Do you know where I can get some copies?

  6. Baker says:

    Hi there. It’s so great to still be able to hear the old songs and still feel the simple yet honest messages of the songs you don’t get from many modern songs today. I remember my Mom used to teach me some of John W. Peterson’s song. I was looking for the lyrics of the song ‘In Pleasant Places’ when I stumbled upon this blog. In Pleasant Places is my Dad’s favorite song so I’m looking for the lyrics to sing for my Dad’s special occasion.

  7. Pam says:

    Do you have a copy of the contata Night of Miracles? If so how could I go about purchasing a copy?

  8. Looking for lyrics to “Johnny Bull” from John W. Peterson’s patriotic cantata “I Love America.”

  9. Janet Williamson says:

    I am looking for piano music and words to the song Springs of Living Water. Do you know where I might find it?

  10. Xavier de la Torre says:

    For some reason, “My Song Of Praise” from Peterson’s Christmas cantata “Down From His Glory” came to mind today. Just a very beautiful song. I’m disappointed I can’t find this wonderful album online in any format.

  11. Gwendolyn Jacobs says:

    It was great to see some of those titles again. I’ve been looking for the song Christ lives through me. Any idea where I can get a copy of the lyrics? I’ve looked online and in my music and can’t find it. Thanks

  12. Benjamin Chad West says:

    I was looking for the words and music to “I’ll Be a Friend of His” and wondered if you had it.

  13. Jeremias Medina says:

    Dear friend
    I write to you from chile, south america…. please i need in mp3 or cd format No greater love cantata,….
    god bless you

  14. Mary says:

    I don’t know who you are, but I bless God for you!

    I learned some of Mr. Peterson’s cantatas and music many, many years ago and I’ve never forgotten them. For some reason however, I’d confused his last name as Christen, and I can’t tell you the hours I have spent at the computer, stumped at trying to find his music or some reference to him! As I was about to walk away from the computer tonight in frustration, the name Peterson came to mind. I GOOGLED it and there was your wonderful web site.

    God bless you, bless you, bless you! I am a very, happy woman now!

  15. Robert says:

    Yes, John Peterson wrote a great deal of fine music. However, I notice on your list “Gracious Saviour, Who Didst Honour.” It’s possible that Peterson wrote a song with that title, but unlikely. It was written by Emily Shirreff, who was born back in 1814. Peterson may have composed a new tune for it, or arranged the old tune, but he didn’t write the text. To learn more, I invite you to check my daily blog, Wordwise Hymns.

  16. Jacqueline says:

    Hello everyone:

    I am a past Kingston Youth For Christ Chorale member and would like to obtain and purchase a copy of the Easter Cantata “The Last Week” by John W. Peterson, printed in English. I need to also know if there has been an accompanying track down in recent times. Would appreciate receiving this informatin ASAP. Thanks.

  17. Gayle says:

    I, too, was just looking for something on John W. Peterson. He has got to be my Favorite composer! I grew up listening to and singing his songs. What a talent from the Lord! So glad I found a place where I can buy his music! I was able to sing I Love America!, with him directing, in Tucson in 1976, what a thrill! I have so much of his music. If someone wants words to his songs or copies, could I give it to them? I know what it’s like to try and find old music. Thank you Barb, God bless you!

  18. Jacqueline Crosdale says:

    Can anyone suggest where I can obtain the split track for the Easter Cantata “The Last Week” and also for “Let The Whole World Know”? both were by JW Peterson. The Jamaica Youth For Christ Chorale did quite a few of his songs in the 1970’s and now that I am a choit director I really would greatly appreciate finding the background music to these songs. Thanks.

  19. Dee Elder says:

    Does anyone know where I can get a copy of his musical I love America?

    Thank you,

  20. Dee Elder says:

    In doing alittle more research I was blessed to find a copy on ebay. I’m so excited. I reading an earlier emial from Jan. 8th. it brought back memories. My father was a music director in a church in Tucson in the 70’s and did I love America so he was probably involved with that performance in some way. What wonderful memories.

    Thank you,

  21. Marge says:

  33. Cindy says:

    This is a great site! I am looking for a J.W. Peterson song from an Easter cantata that has the lyrics “…walking on air…” somewhere near the beginning- perhaps in the first song. Can anyone help me? Thank-you in advance!

  34. Georgean says:

    This is a great site! I have 2 cassettes that I used for years to sing with the accompaniment. I just got them out to use again and I simply cannot remember some of the lyrics..oh no! Both sides of the tape are accompaniment with no lyrics. I just wrote to the Peterson web site to ask for them, but in case they don’t respond, does anyone have the words for:

    What Grace Is This #CM 104
    The Cleansing Power #CM 168

  35. Ken says:

    I have borrowed a tape titled “He set my tears to music”
    The Song titles on this tape are:
    Side 1
    He set my tears to music
    In my Father’s House
    Dust on mother’s bible
    Thank you Lord
    He knows just what I need
    Leave it there
    A mother as lovely as you
    He touched me
    Side 2
    One more song to sing
    Where no one stands alone
    Mansion over the hilltop
    An evening prayer
    Hem of His Garment
    If I can help somebody
    Through the eyes of a child
    God’s Hand in mine

    The tape documents the life of a brilliant vocalist who dies of cancer in 1991 or 1992. She had gone on a couple of evangelistic trips in the early/mid 80’s before the onset of cancer in 1988. When knowing that she had cancer for the third time, she was convinced to go touring to share His message. When approaching death, she went out again a short while later, and died on tour.

    I put the tape on without looking on Side 2, and was crying before the end of the first song, and by the third song, tears were streaming down my face. It is truly a magnificent anointed tape.


  36. Arthur Bullard says:

    Please, what are the lyrics to ” I will trust and never be afraid?”

  37. Fred Shelton says:

    Do you have any knowledge of a Christian musical done in the 1960’s called “World’s Apart”? I think Jon wrote some of the music for that movie. I have tried to find information about it, but to no avail. I saw it many years ago on 16mm.

  38. Lydia Hall says:

    So happy to see all of those who so loved his music! I too find it difficult to try to find some of John W Petersons music. I am looking for a copy of Hallelujah! What a Savior. I anyone has an extra copy of this Cantata…..I would forever be grateful.
    Thanks for all of the wonderful sharing of this his music!

  39. Rich B says:

    Does anyone know who or what singing group or soloists ever performed Mr. Peterson’s song, “No regrets?”
    I’ve exhausted research in trying to even find a vinyl album with the song performed by any group or soloists. If anyone knows, please give me their names or point me to a site that can pull up the individual listings on the cassettes or records. What a daunting task! Thank you!

  40. Xerraire says:

    Lyrics for No Regrets

    I’ve no regrets that I said yes to Jesus
    That when He called I answered Him that day
    I’ve no regrets that I became a Christian
    And turned from sin to walk the narrow way

    No regret; no regret
    for the cup of life He’s filled up to the brim
    Sweet peace is mine and joy that can’t be measured
    I’ve no regrets I chose to follow Him

    I’ve no regrets I left my old companions
    who scorn the Lord and live the things of earth
    I’ve no regrets that now I’m serving Jesus
    To me this friendship is the greater of worth

    I’ve no regrets I’ve suffered some for Jesus
    I’ve know some pain and wept some bitter tears
    I’ve no regrets for when and how He’s led me
    to trust His will; release my doubt and fears

    No regrets. No regrets
    it’s been Heaven just to walk with Him each day
    and besides when face to face and then I see Him
    all the trials of life and labor He’ll repay

  41. Ed Terui says:

    Hi Barb,
    I’ve been searching for CD accompaniment for some of John W. Peterson’s songs. One in particular is “O Glorious Love”. Are there any CD accompaniments of his music?

  42. Xerraire says:

    Hi Ed

    Nice to ‘know’ another John W. Peterson fan.

    I do not know for sure if they still have the music for this piece, but it
    is listed on their available page. They are very helpful when you email
    them at John W. Peterson’s website.

    Have a look here and you can see the song is listed and their contact

    I hope they have what you are looking for!
