PEACE LIKE A RIVER

Once fog has lifted clear away,

Thus revealing a sunny day.

Fog 0f sin, can we not see?

What Jesus did for you, for me?

.

.

He took it all upon Himself,

Leaving the comfort of that shelf,

Of joy of peace, bright realms above!

Left it all for men, it is called love!

.

.

Did He have to leave home, heaven?  No!

Did God, over all, command go?

His comfort secure as all can see.

Did he not leave all just for me?

.

.

And you?  And no answers can remain,

Tell me, who on earth could then disdain

The desire for joy evermore?

To remain in heavens’  blissful shore!

.

.

Can any then imagine this,

Leaving all, yes, heavenly bliss?

To suffer with sinful people below,

Who really cannot tell which way to go!

.

.

Loving the sin they are living in!

Cannot see clearly to live within,

Realms of peace and joy that Christ shows!

That we can have as river flows.

.

.

Joy supreme can anyone know?

Christ makes promise to us below!

“Take up your cross and follow me!”

To know real joy everlastingly!

.
