Everlasting Peace

Raised in the family,

I watched as she lived life in strides.

Not a mother or a father,

But, I know she’s like mine in my eyes.

Refrain:

In a prayer for your peace,

I prayed she’d know your peace.

Lord, grant her peace,

Everlasting peace.

***

When I claimed you as, Savior,

Your breath filled my body and mind.

When she saw how much I loved you,

She still stayed there close by my side.

Refrain:

In a prayer for your peace,

I prayed she’d know your peace.

Lord, grant her peace,

Everlasting peace.

***

Lord, I know the way home,

But, I’ll rest my soul here a while.

I’m praying for your mercy.

Lord, be there in her last rugged mile.

Refrain:

In a prayer for your peace,

I prayed she’d know your peace.

Lord, grant her peace,

Everlasting peace.

***

Tag:

Lord, have mercy, grant peace.
