The legendary Christian singer, who titled his new song "A Desperate Benediction," performed the touching tune alongside his son Caleb and daughter-in-law Jillian.

"I’m so heavy hearted at the brokenness and division that we are witnessing and experiencing in our world today, and I am processing in the way most natural to me as a singer-songwriter: with a song," Chapman wrote in the accompanying message. "I actually started writing this song about a year ago with my brilliant songwriter friend Tom Douglas, but have been waiting for the right time to share it, and I feel like now is that time."

In calling for peace, the singer added where he believes true peace originates.

"Ultimately, I believe that true peace...the peace that transcends all understanding and guards our hearts and minds...comes from the Prince of peace, Jesus Christ," he said.
