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.”
