When there is Peace
English source: Fiona Macleod

There is peace on the sea tonight
Thought the fish in the white wave:
There is peace among the stars tonight
Thought the sleeper in the grave:
There is peace in my heart tonight
Sighed love beneath its breath;
For God dreamed in the silence of His might
Amid the earthquakes of death
There is peace tonight.


Herbert Howells
