“peace I leave”


“Peace I leave with you,
My peace I give to you;
not as the world gives
do I give to you.”

– Jesus (John 14:27, NKJV)

Your peace given
ours to breathe,
yours somehow,
the world’s together.

Sudden as
we drop our scythes,
come to pray
a world together.

Peace nor love
nor your charge fear,
given into
world together.

As if light
weren’t yours to give,
lead us care
the world together.

Peace as if
you made us each,
ours to leave
the world together.
