Romans 12:18 tells us, "If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone."

**************************

Let There Be Peace

Each day we live is another chance, 

For making all things new;

With dawn appearing from the dark,

A golden light breaks through.

And in that moment, still in time,

We're granted this release...

The Father speaking to us all,

Saying, "Let there be peace!"

Let it rise up from the depth of us,

So that everyone will see!

Let it fill our days, above all else,

With imperial decree!

Let it grow to show the ones we meet,

That HIS mercy will not cease!

When the day is done, in the dark of night,

God is whispering, "Let there be peace!"

In the dawn of changes in our lives,

Each step in still unknown;

Our faith reminds us, through it all, 

We are never left alone.

And though our trials blind at times,

Our hope can still increase;

Within our hearts and in our souls,

God says, "Let there be peace!"

Let it take anxiety and our fears,

And replace them with belief!

Let it find its way to overcome,

Where hearts now harbor grief!

In the light in which HE sees us all,

As HIS greatest masterpiece...

Hear the words resounding stridently,

When God says, "Let there be peace!"
