Advent reflection: Peace

You are Peace.

We await you oh Jesus!

We are fretting – come and ease us

With your Peace.


We are anxiously waiting

And eagerly advocating;

Bring us Peace.


A virgin is with child;

On a donkey they are piled

Carrying Peace.


A long journey lies ahead;

Over mountains they must tread

Yet there’s Peace.


Shepherds sleep in restful grasses;

Angels appear by the masses

Singing Peace.


Telling of a newborn King,

The one of whom these angels sing

Of coming Peace.


Their song makes the shepherds weep;

They load their packs and their sheep

To meet Peace.


Kings come from foreign lands,

Traveling years upon the sands

To honor Peace.


Astronomy has pointed to a star

That leads them to a place afar

They find Peace.


Virgins, shepherds, sheep, and kings

All await what this child brings.

Who is Peace?


Oh mercy mild;

Who is this child?

You are Peace.
