I Am For Peace (Psalm 120)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am for peace

 

I see fear and sadness, people weary of the world

I don't know what to say but I will try

 

I am for peace

 

Terror and violence far away and close to home

Ammunition, words and hands-- Where do we stand?

 

I am for peace

 

News is streaming in

Can't ignore the suffering

Evil only needs good people to be silent

 

I am for peace

 

Kitchen table, council meet-ing, hallways, sidewalks of the world

Texting, talking, meeting someone, I open my hand and reach out

 

I am for peace

 

Angry at myself, sometimes call myself bad names

Outrage in the mirror

Let forgiveness start

 

I am for peace

 

Poison in the air, garbage in the soil and sea

Feel the planet strain

I'll do what I can today

 

I am for peace

 

There are people we don't like

Ones who rub us the wrong way

We don't have to be best friends, but find a way to share the world

 

I am for peace
