To Know God’s Peace ~

To Know God's Peace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
Oh, to know the peace of God,
 to slip to sleep upon its crest
 to wade into its soft caress
 and find my perfect rest.
To wait for the calming relief,
 from the years of eroding pain
 to find its ebbing tranquility
 releasing all my earthly strain.
Oh, to calm the rushing roar,
 that rages through my mind
 peace asleep upon the shore
 waves to me to come and find.
Peace, peace why do you flee,
 from the head on which I lie
 flood me with your quietness
 abide with me until I die.
Oh, how I long to obtain,
 a stillness – too still to hear
 and then, oh then, my Lord . . .
 I’ll be kept safe and near!
Psalm 4.8
“I will both lay me down in peace,
 and sleep: for thou, Lord,
 only makest me dwell in safety.”
King James Version
