Prayer of Peace
Inspired by St. John of the Cross

Chorus:
Blessed Jesus, still my soul in You
Let Your mighty calmness reign in me.
Hold me close, O King of gentleness
Prince of Peace, reign in me.

Verse 1:
(Leader)
I surrender my words to You - I surrender my thoughts to you
I leave all my cares with You today.

(People)
We surrender our words to You - We surrender our thoughts to You
We leave all our cares with You today.

Verse 2:
(Leader)
From all want of meekness - From all want of gentleness
O dear Lord, deliver me today.

(People)
From all want of meekness - From all want of gentleness
O dear Lord, deliver us today.

Verse 3:
(Leader)
I surrender my fears to You – I surrender my tears to You
I leave all my cares with You today.

(People)
We surrender our fears to You – We surrender our tears to You
We leave all our cares with You today.


Original Text
“O Blessed Jesus, grant me stillness of soul in Thee. Let Thy mighty calmness reign in me. Rule me, O thou King of gentleness, King of peace. Give me control, control over my words, thoughts and actions. From all irritability, want of meekness, want of gentleness, O dear Lord, deliver me. By thine own deep patience give me patience, stillness of soul in Thee. Make me in this, and in all, more and more like Thee. Amen.”-St John of the Cross
