"King of Peace" by Generation Letter

Worship at our church this morning was amazing.  The songs that were chosen were so perfect for where I am today.  One of my closest friends was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  We are in the beginning stages of what this means, but I am still reeling from the news.  When we started to sing the words of this song, I couldn't help but be reminded of the the truth that God is with us in the midst of suffering and pain.  I found the lyrics online this evening and thought I'd share them with you.  If you are interested I'm sure you could google the song or look for it on You Tube or iTunes.  It's a beautiful song!

“King of Peace” reminds and assures us of God’s faithful presence and care in the midst of suffering and trials. Here are the lyrics:

Verse 1
Lord, your children have not been spared
From this worlds daily trials and cares
We know weakness, fear and sorrow, yet weʼre not alone
You are near in our time of need
You are faithful you hear our pleas
You give grace to all who hope in your mighty name

King of peace you calm our raging storms
All we need is found within your arms
We find rest by your quiet stream
King of peace

Verse 2
We were rebels against your reign
We were haters of your great name
When you saved us from your justice and from ourselves
You gave life to our hearts of stone
Made a way for us to your throne
Where we lay down all our burdens at your feet

We stand upon your faithfulness As we trust in you
