Kempis taken from “Imitation of Christ”
Four Things that Bring Inward Peace
“My Son, now will I teach thee the way of peace and of true liberty.”
Do, O my Lord, as Thou sayest, for this is pleasing unto me to hear.
“Strive, My Son, to do another’s will rather than thine own.
Choose always to have less rather than more.
Seek always after the lowest place,and to be subject to all.
Wish always and pray that the will of God be fulfilled in thee.
Behold, such a man as this entereth into the inheritance of peace and quietness.
The day is near, the time has come
Bread is broken, Wine is drunk
The deal is done, Fate has been sealed
Sealed with a kiss, the sign of love, no less
How times have changed, how people change
From cries of love, to cries of hate
The awaited one came, they couldn’t see
He healed, taught love but, still they did not see
Now time has passed, they’ve had their chance, they chose their path
Hand are washed, backs are turned
The cross stands high, one of three, for all to see
Bang, bang, bang,
one, two and three
The crown of thorns, to crown a king
Spills blood for sins He came to bear
The sky, it darkens
Forgive , forgive forgive
But not the end
A QUIET PLACE TO SIT AND CONTEMPLATE GODS CREATION
