Let Peace Reign
Light of night shone brightly
from the sky up above
illuminating life's story
of God's Majesty and love.
His Son Jesus' humble entrance
brought tranquility to the fore
His lowly manger's ambiance
no reflection of His lure.
Abundant peace that He brought
provides cure for evil thoughts
Jesus' example of good deeds
can help satisfy our needs.
Now, empty cliches or instructions
cannot quell the huge degradation
that destroys every single nation
so listen carefully congregation.
For peace and silence a price He paid
on the cross His life He freely gave
on Golgotha's cruel tree
Jesus died for you and me.
No violence of mind or soul
ensconced in His humanity
constructed our access to divinity
to maintain and promote our sanity.
Only God can silence violence
from the inside out
we are all responsible
for this peaceful drought
so in this season of goodwill
let us make a start
to live in love and unity
from within our heart.
Let peace reign in every soul
spread to home, friends and abode
along each street and community
in village, town and entire country.
Turn to God and seek His face
feel the warmth of His embrace
He alone can bring great silence
so we can stop the noise and violence;
as we INCREASE THE PEACE.
