Come Now, O Breath of Peace

Peoples around the world are bound by the sound of fury,
Shackled by deprivation, starvation, escalation of violence;
People hurt people, avert justice, and desert Lady Wisdom,
Overtly perverting, exerting themselves, inverting decency

O Come now, O Breath of Peace, come from above,
And bind up the broken heart and calm our fears;
Come near and blow through our world with love

Do we really want to mar the earth, this place of our birth?
Do we really want to compromise the worth of all creation?
Here today, but like flowers of the field we yield in the end,
And our place knows us no more and with nothing to show

O Come now, O Breath of Peace, come from above,
And bind up the broken heart and calm our fears;
Come near and blow through our world with love

Peoples around the world struggle to survive, even thrive,
Persistently walking the halls ‘n consistently hitting walls
Of resistance without any assistance even for subsistence;
Is this really how some want to live, with so much to give?

O Come now, O Breath of Peace, come from above,
And bind up the broken heart and calm our fears;
Come near and blow through our world with love

Blow thru each of us with loving peace from above!
Blow thru each of us with loving peace from above!

Peoples around the world are bound by the sound of fury,
And shackled by chains
And shackled by chains

O Come now, O Breath of Peace, come from above,
Blow thru each of us with loving peace from above!
Blow thru each of us with loving peace from above!

    1. When we look around us, the world does seem so sad; yet there is hope. There is darkness all around us, but “the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome the light.” The Prince of Peace has come and his Spirit is alive and moves throughout our world. . . We only have to capture that Spirit ~ or, rather, allow the Spirit to capture us ~ and hope, pray and believe. Although it may often seem so; nevertheless, we have not been left alone, dear Jyotee. . . The “so-called lord” is all around us! As always, peace and blessing to you!

      1. Ah, and did I forget??? There is also the necessary element of faith, which brings to mind two of my favorite teachings from sacred Scripture: “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by faith people of old obtained a good report . . . So now abide faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” And so we hope and exercise faith, ever and always in genuine love; thus, we may go on and live abundantly rather than merely existing. Ah, yes! So, again, all the best to you, dear Jyotee, with many blessings!
