"Peace Child" lyrics - INDIGO GIRLS

"Peace Child"

Peace Child,
In the sleep of the night,
In the dark before light
You come,
In the silence of stars,
In the violence of wars-
Savior, your name.

Peace Child,
To the road and the storm,
To the gun and the bomb
You come,
Through the hate and the hurt,

Through the hunger and dirt-
Bearing a dream.

Peace Child,
To our dark and our sleep,
To the conflict we reap,
Now come-
Be your dream born alive,
Held in hope, wrapped in love:
God's true shalom.
