1. The peace of Christ pervades us,
Between each breath, each thought;
We sense a pulse, a Presence,
Unsummoned, and yet sought.

2. The peace of Christ contains us,
An equiposing force
Among life's whirring circles,
Peace holds us through our course.

3. The peace of Christ extends us
Like tendon coaxing bone
To reach, a fluid movement,
Toward lives beyond our own.
