Check out Rebeccas studio recording of this song!
This gospel-influenced solo is based upon Jesus’ promise, found in John 14: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” A musical setting full of joy and conviction brings a modern paraphrase of those words to light, until you’re left with … sweet peace.
Music and Lyrics by Rebecca Minor
I wake up to a new day
Right then I face a choice
To let my heart be troubled
Or listen for your voice.
Darkness and confusion may extend a beckoning hand
But you have left this precious gift so I would understand
That sweet peace, sweet peace, sweet peace, sweet peace is mine.
What you teach I ponder
And deeply search within
You help me see the falsehood
Of sickness, death and sin.
What this world can offer cannot possibly compare
With life in Spirit you’ve designed, this joyful journey where
Sweet peace, sweet peace, sweet peace, sweet peace is mine.
Fear, you’ll try to win me back
You’ll boast of pain, you’ll tempt with lack.
But there is nothing you can do
To make a lie true.
Send me trouble, give me grief,
You’ll only strengthen my belief.
Nothing in this masquerade
Can make my heart afraid.
For sweet peace, sweet peace, sweet peace is mine.
In your love I find my sweet peace of mind.
Sweet peace is mine.
