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.
