Peace, Joy, and Life Everlasting

Why do I look to the sky, bow my head to the ground,

Or look to Man, as if I’ll find you there?

You dwell within me. Your Spirit, a spring of living water,

A burning liquid flame in my veins.

Turn my gaze within, towards the never-ending source of life,

Driving away the darkness in my soul.

Flow abundantly, Lord. Fill me increasingly full.

Love without condition. Mercy without prejudice.

Forgiveness without limitation. Faith without wavering.

In these I will find peace, joy, and life everlasting.

Let your goodness spring forth from me, so this world can know.

Your glory. Your life. Your reality.

Let those who profess your name in pretense,

Showing love with condition. Mercy with prejudice.

Forgiveness with limitation. Faith overcome by fear –

Worshiping, they no not what.

If there be anything pure, anything good, anything selfless in them,

Let them see, so they too might be filled.

As for the rest, your judgment is just. Your ways beyond all understanding.

In you alone will we find life, light, and peace.

When your time comes and your power shown in all the earth, then will they see?

They will curse you, look to Man, to the earth, to the prince of the world –

Worshiping, they no not what.

For those who stand true, holding fast to your name alone,

If there be anything pure, anything good, anything selfless in them,

Show them love without condition. Mercy without prejudice.

Forgiveness without limitation. Comfort despite fear.

So they may find peace, joy, and life everlasting.
