The Peace-speaker

It was such a lovely day, the sun was shining bright, a gentle wind was blowing my way, not a storm cloud in sight, then suddenly without warning, a storm surrounded my life, but even in the storm I could feel the calm and here’s the reason why. Chorus: I know the peace speaker, I know him by name, I know the peace speaker, he controls the wind and rain, when he says peace be still, they have to obey, I’m glad I know the peace speaker, yes I know him by name. Verse :2 There’s never been another man with the power of this friend, by simply saying peace be still, he can calm the strongest wind, and that’s why I never worry, when the storm clouds come my way, I know that he is near to drive away my fear and I can smile and say. Verse 3 Peace, peace, wonderful peace Coming down from the Father Above. When He says, Peace be Still, They have to obey. I'm glad I know the Peace Speaker, Yes I know Him by Name. I know Him by Name. I know the Peace Speaker, Yes I know Him by Name.
