My Peace

🍊  Before my eyes open in the morning

      At the instance of submerging from sleep

      Even before I am aware of anything external

      I experience something so powerful and so deep


🍋  My eye lids slowly open from their rest

      And I extend one arm to test the air

      Whatever my sense of touch detects

      My internal peace is always there


🍌  It’s the start of a brand new day

      I rise and prepare for its future

      Knowing this peace will not be fazed

      Because it is an inexhaustible treasure


🍉  To try and explain its presence in me

      Would be like trying to describe the indescribable

      You have to be inside my skin to know

      And that would be impossible


🍇  This peace is from God and it guards me

      Jesus left it here 2000 years ago

      The first to have it were the Disciples

      A special gift which you can know


🍓  Sometimes you can see it in my eyes

      Or hear it behind my voice

      It has something of eternal life in it

      And inwardly I choose to rejoice


🍈  All pain is denied at the door

      Situations and circumstances cannot penetrate

      Man tries but cannot touch this core

      Peace is always early and never late


🍒  When the day turns into history

      And I retire in the evening in peace.

      I rest sweetly on my cosy pillow

      And withdraw my arm back under the sheets


🍑  I gently close my eyes and rest

      And before long I’m fast asleep

      God has been faithful today

      His gift of peace is mine to keep


🍍  This heavenly gift I received was free

      And you can have it with ease

      Give Jesus Christ your entire life

      In return He’ll give you eternal peace
