There Is Peace

There is peace in the turmoil
And strength for the road
He won't leave me friendless
To carry this heavy load

There are birds ever winging
To places far away
And as He guides their journey
He's prepared the place they'll stay

There is calm across the waters
That were raging without form
And when He spoke it into being
The land around was formed


The earth gives up it's fullness
And provides my daily bread
It gives me strength to walk along the path
He's fashioned as I'm lead

There is comfort on the rough roads
Where I struggle hard to cross
But His hand is firmly in my own
So I'm never really lost


There is laughter in the magic
Of this love He gives to me
To lighten up my spirit
Giving true tranquillity

There is peace in every moment
If I only look to see
He's the solution to every problem
And forever one with me

Karen Shaw Matteson


The fruit of silence is prayer.
The fruit of prayer is faith.
The fruit of faith is love.
The fruit of love is service.
The fruit of service is peace.
