A Sense of Peace
When passing through the heat and fire,
Three things sustain my mind and heart;
Though still I may not understand,
A sense of peace they do impart.
Beyond all else, I must believe
That what my Father up above
Allows to come into my life
Is based on His unchanging love.
Then this, too, I must remember,
That nothing e'er escapes God's eye.
He is aware of everything.
He even knows before I cry.
And then this, too, I must believe
Down deep within my troubled soul,
That nothings in this universe
Is ever out of God's control.
