(Jesus said) Peace be Still
Oh My Heart Be Still
My aching heart,
My stammering tongue,
Anxiousness quivering my nerves
Doubt mingled with curiosity
Causes my wondering soul to stir
Ready to react, warring within to reply,
Response murmuring upon my lips.
Yet Jesus said. " Peace be still."
Hands shaking wanting to fight.
My heart lacking rhythm
Beating at its own plight
Warning me this is not well,
Though My Jesus had said,"Peace be still."
Oh Jesus as the prophet hath spoken
"I am cut off." What did Jeremiah know?
How did he wail to you from his pain?
If to live is Christ and to die is gain
Why in my heart must I feel pain?
Travail hath abounded herself in me
Has kept me from happiness
Joy doth elude my soul
Fear encompasses all around
Laughter bound by sorrow
Has marked me with sin's stain
My spirit is broken dear LORD
I must learn from your word
I heard as David cried out
Return the joy of Thy salvation
Renew Thy spirit within me
Let me no longer lament
But before Thy throne repent,
Teach me within my soul
From Thy love not to part
Write upon my heart
Place into my will,
"Peace Be Still"
