Jehovah-Shalom

Written by: Laurie Ginn

    Come to me O lord that heals
           Not only my body but my spirit yield

    When I’m here in this place, I cry out to you Lord
            My words insignificant but my heart one accord

    You’ve shaped my life since I was eight
             You’ve dealt with my questions and my debate

    In my disobedience you showed me love
             Patiently waiting for me to again look above

    I know as I disappoint myself I do not disappoint You
             For in You all knowing, all loving You knew
                     That I could never go far and I grew
                             As You waited

     How long have You waited for your children to see
            That it’s all built on love and they’ve been deceived

     I cry out to You Jehovah to open our eyes
             Allow the things that have hindered to be now despised

     With good intentions we lost the truth
             Afford us Jehovah, the journey to find all truth

                     For if God is the truth and the truth is God
                             Then wisdom will begin where the journey ends 

 Shalom is the kind of peace that results from being a whole person in right                         

                        relationship to God and to one's fellow man.
