Chaos rumbles beneath each life
Trials tremble each soul
Knowing tomorrow may be filled with strife
Lives of quiet desperation squeak

Jesus comes calling on poor desperate souls
Forgiveness and wholeness His gift
Tasting the presence and fullness of God
Peace and joy bless their days

Desperate for growth
Becoming right now
Seeking for shortcuts
Joy and peace are their goal

They discover quite by surprise
Their heart has turned cold
Chaos and trials are grabbing their souls
Tomorrow takes on a fearsome look

What did we do?
How can we get back to joy and peace?
When we had chaos on a leash?
We want those first days with Jesus back

Let Jesus have your focus
Strive to be His best friend
Spending time in fellowship
Knowing Him more and more

Jesus brings value to living
He blesses us with joy and peace
His presence gives us wholeness
Jesus Christ makes us complete

Jesus saves us from separation from God
Jesus unites us with God
Jesus is God’s everything
Jesus brings joy to life
