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.
