My own peace I give you. John 14:27
My peace I give you in times of deepest grief,
Imparting calm and trust and My relief.
My peace I give when prayer seems lost, unheard;
Know that my promises are ever in My Word.
My peace I give when thou art left alone-
The nightingale at night has sweetest tone.
My peace I give in time of utter loss,
The way of glory leads right to the cross.
My peace I give when enemies will blame,
The fellowship is sweet through cruel shame.
My peace I give in agony and sweat,
For mine own brow with bloody drops was wet.
My peace I give when nearest friends betras-
Peace that is merged in love, and for them prays.
My peace I give when there's but death for thee-
The gateway is the cross to get to Me.
