There is Peace
There is peace in the center of my soul this very day
As I sit here in the silence and bow my head to pray
It is more than just a feeling and a happy place to be
It’s a very real contentment and assurance just for me
Assurance that the Master left His throne and came to earth
Gave His life for my transgressions… took my failings… gave me worth
There is peace… past understanding…yet I claim it just the same
He gave me kinship… and a family… through adoption… and His name
Now I wear the name of Christian… and I pray… I wear it well
May those seeking this contentment find my Lord and avoid Hell
May they have this peaceful “Filling of His Spirit” in their soul
May their life be so rewarding… now that Heaven is their goal
There is peace in serving Jesus… loving Him… and living right
You no longer have to worry ‘bout the devil and his fright!
You have victory and courage… fighting battles through His power
If you’ll first spend some alone time in his Word for ‘bout an hour
Time in prayer for spirit renewal… and to pray for others too
There is peace in this agenda… I enjoy it… how ‘bout you?
“Oh what peace we often forfeit… oh what pain we often bear
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer”
Even songs can lift our spirit and bring peace into our heart
There is peace …and there is plenty…won’t you reach out for your part?
What He’s done so well for others he will also do for you
It’s a gift… free for the taking…nothing that you have to do
Oh we struggle… and we falter… and we try so very hard
To achieve such high endeavors and get good marks on our card
But all we need to do is “be still” and know that He is God…
There is peace within this stillness… wait on Him…you will be Awed!
