Healing

Seek peace (Psalm 34:14; NIV).

1. Healing is a painful, lifelong journey:
A pilgrimage
In search of inner peace.

2. I struggle up the path to my next insight;
What joy to reach the top,
And what relief!

3. But every crest reveals a higher mountain,
And more beyond,
As far as I can see,

4. Until, at last, I glimpse my destination:
The hill, Lord, where you died
To set me free.
