"My peace I give in times of deepest grief;
Imparting calm and trust and My relief.
My peace I give when prayer seems lost, unheard;
Know that My promises are ever in My word.
My peace I give when thou art left alone -
The nightingale at night has sweetest tone.
My peace I give in times of utter loss,
The way of glory leads right to the cross.
My peace I give when enemies will blame,
The fellowship is sweet through cruel shame.
My peace I give in agony and sweat,
For mine own brow with bloody drops was wet.
My peace I give when nearest friend betrays -
Peace that is merged in love, and for them prays.
My peace I give when there's but death for thee -
The gateway is the cross to get to Me." (L. S. P.)--I received this in an email, so I don't know what "L. S. P." stands for.....
