Passion For Peace



Tune: Old Yeavering

('Like a mighty river flowing')

Romans Chapter 5 part

*******

Peace, peace, it good folk do seek sure

Whence comes peace, where be it e'ermore?

Surely when human hearts changed are

By nature they from God far

 

Yet Jews counted near to God be

And Gentiles as far from Him, see

Both to Him can be reconciled

Though sin's state makes all defiled

 

How this reconcile, atonement?

'Tis through Christ, God's only Son sent

Being justified by faith here

Believing the gospel clear

 

So thus justified we have peace

With God, a peace that shall not cease

Obtained through our Lord Jesus Christ

Offering, sacrifice, sufficed

 

Human plans for full peace measure

Somewhat only gains this this treasure

A fruit of the Spirit, peace be

God's power through you and me

    This peace is 'like' so many things, as the hymn-clip says!

    I stand with you dear Oridee! May that peace start with you and me! Of course Christ is the first start of peace and we just follow!
