Peace Came Quietly

December 11, 2007

Peace came quietly in the night,
and for many, without our knowledge.
Yet peace pursues us until this day
Asking, directing, coaxing us on
to a better day and a better way

Do you hear His call?
Can you walk His way?
Will you say yes to Peace
and carry your cross, in step behind?

Blessed be the quietly waiting
As they shall see the Wonder of Wonders
Blessed be the humbly serving
As they shall know His voice

Come away now to Love’s side
And gaze with wonder on what God has done
Bringing Light to Life in a backward place
His advancing kingdom within our reach

Join the poor and hungry,
The wretched of the earth
In celebrating our Lord
And laying all before Him now
Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
