Nations at war with one another.
Father at war with His son’s mother
Sister at war with baby brother.
God’s World seeks peace from other lovers.
Little do we know that you’ve got us covered.
Peace only comes through the lamb that has suffered.
Your peace not achieved through the ways of the earth
It comes once for all, through the Bethlehem birth.
If we live by the sword, we’ll die by the sword,
But peace that is lasting, is peace from the Lord.
Praise be to God who makes violence cease
Who guides our feet in the ways of peace.
Praise to the God who makes our hearts his home.
Glory to Jesus, the God of shalom.
