Give Us Peace

by Tabitha N. Munyoki

Give us peace, Lord
Peace that surpasses understanding
Give us peace, Lord
Not as the world gives
Flood our hearts with your light
We will not be troubled or afraid

Give us peace, Lord
Peace that surpasses understanding
Give us peace, Lord
Flood us with your healing
Those broken-hearted and crushed in spirit
Bind our wounds

Give us peace, Lord
Peace that surpasses understanding
Give us peace, Lord
And the grace to forgive
Those that maim in your name
Guard our hearts and minds in Christ

Give us peace, Lord
Peace that surpasses understanding
Give us peace, Lord
Illuminate us to do good
To do justice, to loving kindness
To walk humbly in your presence
