9-3-14 The Quietness of Soul

quietwaters

Man’s righteousness can only go so far,

Yet forged by God it lives eternally,

And worked through Jesus Christ’s atonement are

Now found in peace and pure tranqulity.

The consequence of righteousness is shown

By yielding all to Jesus, then made whole,

Assured by faith man’s peace is fin’lly known

In calmest mind and quietness of soul.

Calamities abound the whole world through

And shake the weak foundation of the lost,

But by the righteousness of Christ so true

Those saved through Grace by faith are boldly crossed.

            The work of righteousness is always peace

            And its effect, His love, will never cease.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And the work of righteousness shall be peace;

and the effect of righteousness quietness

and assurance for ever.

Isaiah 32:17 KJV
