Perfect Peace – Adhithi K Sajeev

When I thought of the peace,

Perfect peace

It is perfect in quality

On its arrival conflict and combat shall cease

 

A peace which lives not now in joy’s excesses,

Nor in the happy life of love secure,

But in the unerring strength the heart possesses,

Of conflicts won, while learning to endure.

 

When I thought of the peace

Perfect peace

Then we’d have tranquillity,

through the storms of life

 

There is the peace that cometh after sorrow,

Of hope surrendered, not of hope fulfilled;

A peace that looketh not upon to-morrow,

But calmly on a tempest that is stilled.

 

When I thought of the peace

Perfect peace

Then we’d have the faith,

to trust God in all things

 

When I thought of the peace

Perfect peace

we’d soar above the turbulence

riding out the winds of strife.

 

A peace-there is, in sacrifice secluded,

A life subdued, from will and passion free
