‘Peace Like A River’ Dolly Parton and Dionne Warwick Duet

Published Mar 14, 2023

Over the years, Dolly Parton and Dionne Warwick have produced several chart-topping hit songs. This time the two legends joined forces, bringing their considerable talents together for a song about the calm and tranquility that comes from God. 

In a video posted on YouTube, Dionne and Dolly sing “Peace Like A River.” The video begins with Dolly, dressed in all white, singing the opening lines to the first verse. About halfway through the second verse, Dionne joins in, and the two musical icons sing a duet.

In the song’s first two verses, the singers are making requests, asking God to use them and their lives in any way He sees fit. They also ask Him to help them be an example, a shining beacon of “things that’s right and good.”

However, the song's chorus is the most powerful, packing the most punch. The two singers mention all the wonderful things God has done, how He has never failed and is “the answer to our questions.”

“He is forgiveness to all confessions
Provider of all needs
And He is hope”

Toward the end of the song, the singers mention the peace that comes from God. They say the “sweet peace” is much like a river that constantly flows. They also ask the Lord to bathe them in this peace, which Philippians describes, as surpassing all understanding. 

What a wonderful and beautiful song and testimony from these two women. They are using their talents and sizable platforms to spread the message of God. Dolly and Dionne sing about all He is, all He can do, and everything He will do. 

Be sure to listen to this awesome song about the peace which comes from knowing God. 

“If only you had given ear to my orders, then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness as the waves of the sea” (Isaiah 48:18).
