PEACE LIKE A RIVER
LORD, I SEARCH FOR YOU TODAY
FULL OF GRIEF AND DESPAIR.
LOSING THE PERSON THAT I LOVED
IS ALMOST MORE THAN I CAN BEAR.
FILL ME WITH YOUR TENDERNESS
YOUR GRACE AND YOUR HEALING WAYS.
COMFORT EVERY FIBER OF MY HEART
AND LET ME SENSE YOU TODAY.
LET ME WALK IN YOUR PRESENCE
LET ME FEEL YOUR EMBRACE.
LET ME KNOW YOUR STRENGTH
IN THE FUTURE I MUST FACE.
FOR I KNOW I CANNOT GO
ONE STEP WITHOUT YOU LORD!
I AM WEAK, BUT YOU ARE STRONG..
HELP ME CARRY THE SWORD.
THE SWORD OF TRUTH, SHIELD OF FAITH,
KEEP THEM DAILY BEFORE MY EYES.
MAY I RELY ON YOU LIKE NEVER BEFORE
KEEP MY HEART FIXED ON THE PRIZE!
THE PRIZE IS BUT A GIFT FROM YOU,
A PRIZE THAT IS MY GOAL.
LIKE A RIVER IN MY SOUL.
THE PEACE THAT COMES FROM ONLY YOU
THROUGH PRAYER ON BENDED KNEE.
AN ETERNITY SPENT WITH MY SAVING LORD,
MY JESUS COME RESCUE ME!
PLACE MY FEET ON SOLID GROUND
SEE ME THROUGH THIS TIME OF PAIN.
GIVE ME HOPE IN EVERY MORN
UNTIL THE SUN DOES SHINE AGAIN.
ONLY YOU HOLD THE KEY TO LIFE,
NOTHING ELSE CAN LEAD THE WAY!
PEACE...LIKE A RIVER...
CAN BE MINE EACH TIME I PRAY.
