PEACE, WHERE?

As a watch in the night…

My spirit awake!

I shall not co-mingle

Alone I will take–

.

.

The stars as companion

In still of the night,

Far from all conflict

Just God in my sight!

.

.

Despair, not a problem,

My spirit awake!

Conflicting emotions

I shall not debate!

.

.

With God in control now!

I know perfect peace!

Joy now established

Hope is increased!

.

.

There is never a moment

I cannot rejoice!

When I open my eyes

I can still hear His voice!

.

.

There is not a murmur,

Not ever a cloud,

In an untroubled sky

God has not allowed!

.

.

So why should I worry?

There is not a care!

My God will not leave me!

He is always near!

.

.

Of course, troubles come!

And I am sure they will go!

The one that I worship

Will not leave, I know!

.

.

Should I wonder how?

I know instinctively

That the moment I call

He will shelter me!

.

.

Himself or an Angel!

I have lived it, know it is true!

Do I know it from the past?

Yes!  It is not something new!

.

.

Despair ?  Just will not happen!

God’s Light through the day

Awakens my spirit!

Keeps conflict away!

.

.

When He is beside me

Cannot give gloom a thought!

On an ‘old rugged cross’

My peace HE has bought!

.
