Words…….

I heard the bells on Christmas day

Their old familiar carols play

And wild and sweet the words repeat

Of “peace on earth, good will to men”

I thought how, as the day had come

The belfries of all Christendom

Had rolled along the unbroken song

Of “peace on earth, good will to men”

And in despair I bowed my head

There is no “peace on earth” I said

For hate is strong, and mocks the song

Of “peace on earth, good will to men”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

God is not dead nor does He sleep;

The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,

With “peace on earth, good will to men”

 

Till ringing singing on its way

The world revolved from night to day

A voice, a chime, a chant sublime

Of Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men

Jesus said…….

“I am leaving you with a gift; peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives—so don’t be troubled or afraid.”

John 14:27 (TLB)
