Peace of God

by Paul Mayes Jamar

Philippians 4:4-7

We are to rejoice in the Lord always
giving thanks throughout our days.

For He has given us a reason to shout,
Hallelujah the language of angels no doubt.

Be kind and generous to all men
for the Lord is at hand, friend.

He calls us to be fair, gentile, and mild
taking everything in prayer to Him as a child.

Make supplications for others’ needs, and prayer
give thanksgiving to God every day, not being rare

Then the peace of God that passes all known understanding
shall keep your hearts and minds through Jesus everlasting.
