While preparing for this week’s message I came across this poem.
There was no name attributed to it, but I thought it was worth sharing. In light of our times it is especially thought provoking.
“Peace on Earth”
Peace on earth, with a world at war?
O what were the angels singing for
That far-away night when the Star shown down
With a glorious light on Bethlehem’s town?
Peace on earth! They were singing of Him
Who was born that night to redeem from sin;
Who still has the power to cleanse and to heal
The contrite heart who is willing to kneel.
Peace on earth, amid sorrow and loss?
Yes, peace indeed, at the foot of the cross!
Peace in a world that is troubled and torn,
Peace in each heart where the Savior is born.
Peace on earth, while the nations rage?
And history is making its darkest page?
Yes, peace on earth, for its steadfast light
Is burning in thousands of hearts tonight!
