THE VOICE OF PEACE
The voice of peace within
What the treasures of this world cannot buy,
Just as money can’t buy true love.
Pure threads of silver and gold
What human hands have not woven
Most beautiful linens embroidered
To cover the innocent nakedness
Artful curves of roundness,
Lines of muscles stretched;
The human form to be made new
To be covered by righteousness
In reflections of glory, intimate secrets made known.
The calming Voice that speaks all out of nothing,
Even the One who desires Jerusalem above all
Zion of beauty, in perfection to rise high above the Earth;
The humble voice of a Lamb, deafening roar of a Lion,
Spirit of our Messiah desires the human spirit
In the covenant of His love
To indwell, to commune
To share and speak freely
As a young child upon the lap,
Or strong hand upon a youthful shoulder,
Eyes that counsel, penetrate welcoming eyes.
As we seek refuge and comfort in His temple of Majesty
He longs to bring His peace and rest to our own spirit-temple
To sing most beautiful songs of shared love within
Echoed by open souls
Free open hearts, open fully to Him.
