Where is the peace the angels proclaimed?

The earth still swirls with sin and pain.

Only humble hearts swept clean

Contain the Holy Gift.

Believe, trust, bow low.

Wise men still seek

Him to know.

Our true



“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. . . . Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27, NIV).
