A peace this world never gave
Came to dwell in my heart,
His spirit to guide, live within.
To love, honor, believe in Him.
He came so long ago,
That we may know,
His power, His love,
Eternal life above.
Praise and glorify His name.
He and the Father are the same.
Believe in Him and become
Adopted sons, eternal life won.
May life bear fruits to nourish
So lives of others may flourish.
Enjoy the peace the world never gave
And joy of life beyond the grave.
Thank you, Lord and Saviour
For life, love, grace and favor.
