He is our peace when all around the storm is raging.
He is our peace when no one seems to care.
And when we find no comfort in the words of those around us,
The peace we find in Christ is always there.
He is our peace when those we love are taken.
He is our peace, even amidst our pain.
And when the enemy would whisper words of deep despair,
The peace of Christ sweeps through us, once again.
He is our peace when we face persecution.
He is our peace through all our suffering.
And when we fear we’ve reached the end of all that we can bear,
His peace will still allow our hearts to sing.
Oh, what a wondrous peace we have in Jesus.
Just knowing that He was and is the same
Assures us that His peace won’t fade with time or circumstance;
For its foundation is His precious Name.
[Jesus said] “I am leaving you with a gift—
peace of mind and heart.
And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give.
So don’t be troubled or afraid.”
John 14:27 NLT
