My Peace I Give to You
Music by Aaron Williams, Lyrics by Jay D Weaver
My peace I give to you;
I bring sweet peace for all.
Not as the world brings peace by force,
destroying great and small.
The world spreads pain and death,
its enemies to bind.
The planes and bombs might win the war,
but not their hearts and minds.
Our Lord forgave them all,
who caused his awful pain.
He threw his body in the breach,
and died that love might reign.
When others strike a blow,
just turn the other cheek.
The flow of violence you might break,
and win the friend you seek.
Forgiveness brings sweet peace
and ends the bitter strife.
God’s kingdom come upon this earth,
and bring not death, but life.
