4-9-15 The Bond of Peace
April 9, 2015 Leave a comment
The Holy Spirit binds us all as one
Who came unto the shadow of the cross
And gave our life to Christ, God’s first-born Son,
Now counted closer than a family’s gloss.
So here we are as one and Spirit led.
The things that caused contention surely cease,
For now the love of Christ’s the common thread
That brings so naturally a bond of peace.
Where there was once dissension we find grace,
No longer slave to sin and anger’s hook;
Forgiveness helps us run the longer race,
A stamina not gained by hook or crook.
When differences arise within the flock,
The key of Christ will open any lock.
Endeavour to keep the unity of the Spirit
in the bond of peace.
Ephesians 4:3 KJV
