It is something we all desire

And so desperately all need…

It’s peace that emanates from God

Which is wise and calm indeed.

We may try different methods

To attain its very essence,

But it’s a temporary condition

Coupled with a transient presence.

Philosophies, religions and traditions

May act as a substitute,

But head knowledge without the Spirit of God

Can never produce lasting fruit.

When we know Jesus we know true peace

And nothing will compare;

When we discover His goodness and pure kindness

And His tender loving care.

And where there’s no Jesus there’s no real peace

As God cannot compromise,

And will never give His precious jewel

Where its feigned or in disguise.

A worldly peace may exist

With a solution temporary,

But the moment chaos enters our life

We’re not so sure and steady.

To know Jesus is to understand

His holy and pure ways,

When peace is His divine gift to us

Where in our heart remains.

It’s a peace that eliminates fear

And will mend a troubled heart;

It’s a tranquility that is steadfast

And instigates a brand new start.

Let’s not be deceived by counterfeits

As there’s so much more to receive,

When we sincerely humble our dear souls

To trust in Jesus and to believe.

To know Jesus is to know pure peace

That’s bestowed from God above;

It’s His guarantee to deliver us

Through our trials with His love.
