It was in the Girl Scout Handbook in the 50s. As I remember it:

Peace I ask of thee, oh river

Peace, peace, peace

When I learn to live serenely

Cares will cease

From the hills I gather courage

Visions of the days to be

Strength to lead and faith to follow

All are given unto me.

(repeat first verse.)

I learned this song in Girl Scout camp (in the 60s). There was an bit we always sang before the words listewd above -- don't know if they are a proper intro to the original song, or if someone put two songs together, but here they are:

A plea for one world
Is heard in many different lands
This is the cry (plea?) of a world that is hungry for
Peace, I ask of thee oh river... etc

Plea for One World is in the DT . At Bonnie Brae in East Otis Mass I remember beginning the chords in Am... a slightly different tune..

We never did those two together. We sang a "trilogy" Begining with Green Trees, then Peace I ask of Thee Oh River, and Finally Taps.

Minor (possibly regional) lyric variations: we sang

A plea for one world is heard in many different lands.
This is the plea of a world that is hungry for peace.
Let all men come together.
Let us work well together,
Striving to make our world better,
Pledging our lives to peace.

As an interesting (to me) sidebar, this song was for a time in the 60s banned at our local Girl Scout camps (Oklahoma and Texas; don't know if this was more widespread). I was told by a college-age counselor this was because the idea of everyone working together was Communistic. Go figure.
Of course certain banned songs, including this one, were not heard around the "official" campfires but got a good deal of airtime in our tents or cabins after lights-out.

I see the DT mentions that this is believed to have been a Young Pioneers song translated from the Russian. Now that I see that, I seem to remember hearing it before, which may well have influenced those who sought to ban it.

Now that you folks mention it, I remember the second half of the song (I admit I had completely forgotten there was more to it). The version I remember was ever so *slightly* different from those posted above:

Let all men come together.
Let all men work together,
Striving to make the world better,
Pledging our lives for peace.

Also never realized it was a round (although once you mention it, it seems obvious) -- which is lovely to know.

Tinker... this is a long shot, but I don't suppose you attended Narrin GS Camp as a kid (in the 60s; Southeast Michigan)? Thing is I remember a girl whose nickname was Tinker; we both particularly enjoyed singing. Even got together once after camp ended. If you want to contact me off-list, my @ddress is vikki@srama.demon.co.uk

Well, Vicki, Tinker may or may not have, but I attended Camp Narrin in the 50's in southeast Michigan. I think there were a set of camp nicknames that were often recycled. When I was there, there was a Tinker as well. I believe I was called Peanuts (last name at the time was Brown).
Songs I remember from there include the "Peace I ask" and "A Plea"
Here are some of the others:
Gehlobit (german, don't know spelling)
Walk Shepherdess, Walk
The Billboard Song
Witchcraft
Kum By Yah
Jacob's Ladder
Man's Life's a Vapor
I'm Wild about Horns on Automobiles
Stodala Pumpa
I'd like to be just like the Wind

There are more. Seems like there was a song leader that I really liked that was a little ball of fire, can't remember her name.
Toby, maybe?
Blessings,
Barbara

I went to Girl Scout camp in East Otis Massachusetts at Camp Bonnie Brae between 1968 to 1974. Tinker was my camp name and I took it back on Mudcat, since it was where I first learnt folk music.

My old GS back pocket song book, which has lost it's cover, notes that Peace I ask of Thee oh River was

" Written during a training course for leaders and camp counslors given aboard a river boat on the Kentucky River."

There is no date given

Hi Barabara & Tinker,

Thanks for your responses. Sorry not to respond quicker myself -- have been away from the computer for the last week or so.

Barbara, I was at Narrin in the late 60s (& early 70s), so I probably wouldn't have known the song leader you mentioned. Some of the songs you mention are familiar, though -- but more are not.

Gehlobit - no
Walk Shepherdess, Walk - yes, but not from camp (one of my Dad's fav songs)
The Billboard Song - yes, but (again) not from Narrin
Witchcraft - no
Kum By Yah - definitely
Jacob's Ladder - no
Man's Life's a Vapor - no
I'm Wild about Horns on Automobiles - yes! (that one brought a smile to my face...)
Stodala Pumpa - no
I'd like to be just like the Wind - no

Here are the songs I remember from Narrin:
Peace I Ask of Thee oh River (of course)
Sippin' Cider/The other day I met a bear
Spiderweb
There are Suitors at my Door
In the Land of Oden (sp?)
Tovishka - with hand motions
An Austrian Went Yodeling - with hand motions
The Spades (go Tulips together) - with hand motions
(Si si si) Playmate - with hand motions
Donkey Riding
Oleanna
The Ash Grove
The Happy Wanderer
I Know a Place
John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt
Land of the Silver Birch
(The Life of a) Voyageur
(I've got a Little) Pile of Tin
Desperado
Green Trees/Taps
The Ship Titanic
Rise & Shine (& give God the glory glory)
Barges (of course)
If All the Raindrops (were lemon drops & gum drops)
L-O-double L-I (P-O-P spells Lollipop)
Roll Me Over in the Clover (a naughty one!)
Ho Young Rider
Hola Hee Hola Ho
I Had a Little Dog (named Do-fi)
Do Your Ears Hang Low?
Piccolo Mini
Dickie Bird
Silly Willie

Rounds:
Rise Up Oh Flame
Make New Friends
Whene'er You Make a Promise
I Have Promises to Keep/The Woods Are Lovely, Dark & Deep
Ah, Poor Bird
Rose/America
Little Jack Horner - with hand motions
Evening Star - with hand motions
A Ram Sam Sam
Buddies & Pals
Here I Sit & Wait for You
La
The Little Bells (of Westminster)

Any of these familiar to you?

Cheers,

Vikki

I am looking for a recording of the song "Peace I ask of Thee oh River", a popular Girl Scout song. I am trying to make a photographic/CD with music for my parents 50th wedding anniversary, and this is one of my mother's favorite songs. I have been able to find lyrics but cannot locate a place to purchase or rent the song...do you know of a CD or website where I might purchase this song? Thanks so much for responding.



I think the actual name of the song is "Peace of the River."
lyrics: Glendora Gosling, music: Viola Wood, 1941
The only recording I could find is on a CD called Girl Scouts Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 (click), by Melinda Caroll.

Check with your local Girl Scout Council. This song is a Girl Scout Song and I doubt it's been recorded else where. If's been several years since I've been active but your council's scout shop should have a recording. You may also find a copy in the council "lending Library".

No... very different from Bingo. Doesn't seem to be in the DT or in the Forum, so here 'tis:

I had a little dog named Do-fi* (*think Fido pronounced backwards... sort of!)

Gehlobit (german, don't know spelling)

This is probably the song we used to sing at Camp Hitaga near Walker, Ia. I don't know German, but I sang it for someone who spoke German, and he wrote out what he thought I was singing, but I lost the words. He said it translated as, "In the loving sight of God." as in "God is watching you." The phoenetic version of what we sang:

I remember this song "peace of the River" from my girl scout days in St. Clair, MI. It was written by a Mrs. Miller after a Girl Scout trip on the Mississippi, I believe. She lived in St. Clair and was the head of the Scouting in St. Clair - this was in the late 1940's.

I am the daughter of Glendora Gosling who wrote the words to "Peace", sometimes called "Peace I Ask of Thee O River". She was in her 20s back in the late 1920s when she wrote it. She was on a Girl Scout training course for camp counselors on the Kentucky River when she wrote the words. Viola Wood, who wrote the music, was also on the same boat trip.
I was in church this morning when the choir sang the Gwyneth Walter arrangement. It was referred to as a "Traditional American Folk Song. I believe my mother gave the copyright to the Girl Scouts so they should be getting some compensation for the use of the song but the copyright may have expired.
