Perfect Peace

God has not promised
A life free a pain,
That troubles won’t come,
That sorrows won’t reign.

He had not told us
The righteous won’t cry,
The good will not suffer,
That dreams will not die.

But He has promised
That in every trial,
He will be with us,
He walks every mile.

Up in the mountains,
Down in valleys low,
He always is with us,
Wherever we go.

Closer than a brother,
His love’s always near,
So never one moment
Do we have to fear.

In Him we find love,
We have hope that won’t fail,
It may be dark for a night,
But the light will prevail.

In all circumstances,
His care will not cease,
So through all our trials,
We can have perfect peace.
