The Peaceable Kingdom

I read of the Peaceable Kingdom
Where righteousness peace and joy abound
And I hear the wonderful songs of the place
Where compassion governs the ground!
I witness the Spirit of grace to know
The truth He promised to show
Submitting my soul to be made whole
Under the Saviour which loves us so
Such love overwhelms my senses
Living in this world saturated with pretenses
How can such pure truth be reconciled within?
And such true love free our souls of sin?
This is where our faith rises to fight
Our weary souls began to be restored
As the core in our eye receives the Christ light
How can this be happening to me?
Such miracles we seldom expect to be
Then this thought reinforces my mind
The LORD said,"Seek and ye shall find"
LOVE
