I Wish For Peace

“The Kingdom of God is righteousness
True wisdom is never argumentative or quarrelsome. It does not strive. It maintains harmonious relationships with everyone, as far as possible. It is impossible to quarrel with a man who is filled with Divine wisdom, for such a man is a peaceable man. ”

– Zac Poonen

I Wish For Peace

When times of sorrow
Come each day,
I always feel sad
And sigh away.

Always a war, needs fighting
Always a life, suffering,
Oh, how I wish,
I wish for peace.

Though, I know, 'tis a test
Laid for us by God,
That the day comes
Of no more burden,
No more load.

A time of love,
A time of ease,
Oh, how I wish,
I wish for peace.

But, what would I give
For people to always get along,
Instead of shouting curses
To, maybe, sing a song?

I hope, I will live
To see my dream come true,
As, I hope, your dreams do to.
Right now, I will wish,
I wish for peace
