Peace

*image source: google.com/images

Dear Lord,
     give us Your peace.
          The ways of the world frighten me so,
                I can barely conceive it!
                     Persecution of Your children
                     all across the earth,
                     hatred of Jews and Christians
                     again has given birth.

Dear Lord,
     give us Your peace.
          The ways of the world anger me so,
               I can barely contain it!
                    There are people every day
                    who lie, cheat and steal,
                    with no thought of judgment
                    for eternity to feel.

Dear Lord,
     give us Your peace.
          The ways for the world sadden me so,
               I can barely believe it!
                    No sympathy, no emotion
                    or compassion moved to tears,
                    such selfishness I have not seen
                    in all my living years.

Dear Lord,
     give us Your peace.
          The ways of the world will soon end,
               I joyously await it!
                    When Jesus and His saints return
                    and make their final stand,
                    the Christian world will celebrate
                    His Kingdom that’s at hand,
                         and we will have peace!
