"'...Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.'
And when He had said this, He breathed on them,
and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit.'"
(John 20:21, 22)
My Peace I Give
The stone could not hold Me in the grave.
I rose bodily and sought My saints,
long waiting for My appearance.
Released from bondage at My
resurrection, raised also into new life,
all join with Me forever.
"Peace be with you," I told My disciples.
Without seeing, blessed are you
My peace I give to you,
not as the world gives,
but enduring forever.
