May the true peace of Christmas,
fill the world with tranquility
may it spread across the land
and put an end to all hostility.
May God hear the entreaties,
from those who live in unrest
may He silence their enemies
and bring hope to their distress.
May the peace of Christmas,
comfort all who are oppressed
may they be filled with assurance
for their suffering, they’ll be blessed.
May God hear the grieving cries,
of those who have lost a loved one
may they be comforted in the grace
found in the arms of, His beloved Son.
May the true peace Jesus brings,
overcome the world’s hatefulness
may the light and love of His life . . .
break down, the hedges of darkness!
“These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
