PRINCE OF PEACE – A Peace Poem

PRINCE OF PEACE

There was a time, when it was taught,

By everyone, who was blood bought,

That Jesus was the Prince of Peace,

Incredibly those days have ceased.

*

No more is war considered sin,

Oh frightful days we’re living in,

A call for war, by those who feign,

To follow God, in Jesus name.

*

Is it because the screams and cries,

They do not hear when someone dies,

Or see the child, forever maimed,

I fear their hands with blood are stained.

*

Atoning blood, Christ crucified,

A substitute, ‘twas Him who died,

For mankind’s sin, redeeming love,

The Spirit, gentle, as a dove.

*

Saviour, Helper, God of healing,

Bread of life, His comfort bringing,

Binder of the broken hearted,

For this truth, were many martyred.

*

Consuming love, God of mercy,

Living waters, for the thirsty,

‘Tis Jesus Word, by Him was sown,

Love others as you love your own.
