The Peace Of God
And the peace of God, which
passeth all understanding,
shall keep your hearts and
minds through Christ Jesus.
My friends ask why I'm so happy,
They find it to be very odd;
They don't know how Jesus fills me
With the precious peace of God.
He gives me grace to make it through
Though all hell may assail me.
How many times I've turned to Him,
And learned He'll never fail me!
So whenever I've a burden,
No matter how great or small,
I place my trust in Jesus Christ,
Knowing He will hear my call.
For He alone restores my joy,
In the midst of any woe,
And only He can give me peace
Like the world will never know.
His word assures me of His care,
And I know that He will do it;
Whatever I may face today,
He'll bring me safely through it!
It's beyond all understanding:
This peace He has in store;
But I take Jesus at His word,
And each day He proves it more!
