Place Of Peace
By June Stein
A place of quiet rest and peace
Where this world fades and conflicts cease
It’s there in pastures green and still
With sparkling water, sunlit hill…
My Shepherd comes in heart and mind
And bids me stay a while and find
The blessing of His Presence near
His tender words of love to hear.
To think that such a place could be
So close, if soul and mind would see
We need not go to some far place
But only rest in Jesus’ grace…
Alone, withdrawn from earthly care
Our heart and mind can take us there
Refreshment from the cares of life
Relief in Him from all our strife.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul…
