Peace

To those whose grief does overtake

And faith does drift as you redound

When your heart bursts with mourning’s ache

His love extends a peace profound

 

As clarity becomes opaque

And you can’t hear His voice’s sound

Oh, trust that He does not forsake

His love extends a peace profound

 

Let His sweet fragrance you awake

As tender mercies do abound

His lilting song greets each daybreak

His love extends a peace profound

 

This task He wills to undertake

Allow His love to heal, surround

It’s your heart for a balm He makes

His love extends a peace profound

 

He offers freedom’s food – partake

His grace, His peace is not earthbound

His water your parched thirst will slake

His love extends a peace profound.

    1. Oh, heavens, no! One day, I’d like to publish these poem as a devotional. But minister? Not on your life (or mine!) But thanks for the compliment, Beth.
