Breathe Your Peace On Us

By Dr. David Rogers

Fourteen years ago Alison and I celebrated our first Christmas together as a married couple.  A month earlier we stood at the altar and exchanged our marriage vows to one another.  As part of our wedding ceremony, a dear friend named Robbie Seay sang a song as a prayer over our marriage and the covenant we were making to one another “‘til death do us part.”  

The name of the song is called “Peace.”  

I cannot hear this song without thinking about Robbie singing this song while I held Alison’s hand and looked into her eyes at the altar steps.  We all go through seasons when chaos seems to run rampant in our lives.  May these days of Christmas not get mired in the hustle and bustle of all that seems to go with this time of year.  Instead, may the peace of Jesus be experienced in our hearts, lives, marriages, friendships, and homes.  May Jesus breathe His peace on us.

On this fourth Sunday of Advent, we light the peace candle.  As we do, may the lyrics of Robbie Seay’s song be a prayer of peace over our lives this Christmas.


Calmer than the sky.

Far away so blue.

Land of living God.

Grant your peace on earth.

We can feel you move.

And cannot stay the same.

The winds are blowing strong.

God of heaven come.

 

(Chorus)

Breathe peace.  

Breathe your peace on us.  

So we might breathe you deep.  

Breathe peace.  

Breathe your peace on us.  

Land of the living God.

 

If we are in the way.

Move us to the side.

God forgive our wrongs.

Rest your hands on us.

All the world is yours.

Let us not forget.

It was you who bore the cross.

God of comfort breathe.

 

Breathe peace.  

Breathe your peace on us.  

So we might breathe you deep.  

Breathe peace.  

Breathe your peace on us.  

Land of the living God.
