Peace comes from the conversation needed,
Found in words that spring from mercy,
The shadows are my reminders of hope,
That began with my distressed cry,
When I tried to give up on life,
Life’s source found me and smiled.
My dear enemy fiercely pursued me,
Pretend love turned quickly to anger,
Words were the sharp barbs,
I could find no place to hide,
He searched for me everywhere,
Finding new ways to trip me up,
Every option was a new trap,
That sought to bring his darkness to me.
Today I woke to peaceful confidence,
Knowing this song that I sing,
Began from Creation’s loving word,
Finding me and calling me be-loved,
Love’s source creating the melody,
Together finding a harmony,
Springing from two hearts loving cry.
God’s whisper echoes around the earth,
I stopped to listen to God’s heartbeat,
Glory made me His greatest joy,
Witness to the spacious rest where I belong.
