Bless Us With Peace

This is my third effort in the "12 Song Challenge," a group I joined in 2020 to encourage songwriting. At the first of each month, the organizers provide a prompt. For March the prompt was "Lenten Themes." I adapted the words from Psalm 118:24-29. The context is the "Hosanna" of Palm Sunday (which comes from Psalm 118).

Bless Us With Peace

O Lord, we ask for you to save
Lord, bless us with peace today

This is the day, Lord, yo have made
With joy and gladness we do pray

Blessed is the one bearing your name
We sing your blessing from this place

O Lord and God, giver of light
You ask and give the sacrifice

We thank you good, eternal Lord
Love given life forevermore
