Peace, the Longing of the Soul

Refreshes the soul

Erases the clouds of fear

His peace, He gives

Peace, be still.

Comfort and relieve

Shines over the soul

Warming the heart

With YAHSHUA ever so near.


The world cries, peace, peace

With noisy weapons

Blood shedding

Hate, vengeance dominate

The strong stands

The weak falls

Peace, still the cry of men

Is now where to be found


Cain, Ismael, Esau

Listen to me you all

Forgiveness never falls

Love never fails

A shaking of hands

An embrace, it is all

It will take

To unite the world.


For peace is a matter

Of a heart clear

Of hate, but filled with love.

Weapons, guns destroy

But love forgives and washes

All clean from it all

As YAHSHUA on the cross

With love forgave them


With each hammer’s sound

One sound at a time

nailing His hands, His feet

On the cross,

His prayer went along

Forgive them Father

For they know not

What they do.


He breathed His last

Conquering men

For God with true peace

Peace many are looking for

Found only in the heart

That is bent down to know

Him, the Prince of Peace

Know YAHSHUA, be at ease.

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
