Peace In This Place: A Poem


My sins You already know

And yet You call me to confess them so

I lay them down at Your feet

As I lay on the ground and weep


Your love is written across the sky

Bidding me to come and die

I’m only a sinner saved by grace

So give me the peace that fills this place


You came to earth and died

All I can do is constantly hide

A crown of thorns You did not pass

So all my sins You’d pay in their mass


Your love is written across the sky

Bidding me to come and die

I’m only a sinner saved by grace

So give me the peace that fills this place


Your law revives my soul

How could You die to make me whole

Your love was displayed on the cross

So all my sin could be counted as loss


Your love is written across the sky

Bidding me to come and die

I’m only a sinner saved by grace

So give me the peace that fills this place
