Peace peace, there is not peace
While sin controls a heart
Dead and cold with life on hold
Sin destroys, denies and controls

Desperate for an end to chaos
We seek some kind of relief
Seldom a day of joy and hope
For those who deny Christ’s plea

Come to me Jesus says
He will give us a new heart
A cleansed soul
And PEACE like a river flowing from the heart of God

In Christ we have peace
No longer at war with God, He is our Father
We are His children and the focus of His love
We are one in the bond of love

Jesus paid the price for our peace
Jesus broke thru the destruction of sin
His act destroyed our separation from the Father
Uniting us in Christ with God

Peace is now our possession
Christ has given it to us for eternity
Claim His precious gift right now and each day
Know that the Lord is good and He gives us His peace
