Peace, oh peace' can we have it? Can we have it?
'Cos now I can't seem to find it
Is there hope for the troubled heart?
Are there answers to questions asked in sorrow
Where no words suffice?
When there's nobody else who can
Put this riotous storm to sleep inside me
Can I count on You?
Peace' oh peace' are you near me? Could you even be?
'Cos now you feel far away from me
In the midst of the pain, it's like
Only violence rules; is there a prospect
Of another way?
'Cos in a turbulent world that's torn
To the core of itself, we need a healer
Hope outside the hurt
Peace' oh peace, can we have it? Can we have it?
The real thing, not a counterfeit' do we even want it?
Songs of desperate hearts and of the hopeless
Crying out for an end to all the chaos
Hanging by fingernails onto a promise
That by the blood on a cross there will be justice
Peace, oh peace, where are you now?
Where are you now? Where are you now?
Prince of Peace, how I need You, how I need You
I won't find rest here without You.
