Like a pure dove and spotless lamb
Like flowers in a meadow;
With rolling hills and crisp fresh air
And the stillness of a shadow.
A mind at ease and uncluttered too
A heart filled with simplicity;
A humbleness with much contentment
It’s where we’d rather be.
Harmonious friendships with pure love
Where sincerity abounds;
Where words are filled with integrity
As pleasant musical sounds.
Peace is priceless and perfect indeed
To be bought it cannot be;
It’s the still and calmness of our soul
Where its fruit is clearly seen.
We are called to be peacemakers
To restore all circumstances;
To bring unity, love and compassion
When joy our heart enhances.
We can still have peace amidst the chaos
When we trust in God Almighty;
With a faith and a love unmovable
As we grasp materialism lightly.
Our silence can be loud indeed
When our soul is truly restless,
aAd although our mouths are mute
Our eyes can never hide distress.
Only God can give us pure true peace
When we’re reconciled to Him;
Where the debt is paid and our guilt washed away
And we’re born again within.
