Where Can I Turn For Peace

In this world of unrest, worry, and fear, I often wonder where I can turn for help. Yesterday in church I joined our Ward Choir in singing the lovely hymn "Where Can I Turn for peace" The lyrics really hit home with me. Here they are:

Where Can I Turn For Peace?
Music by Joleen C. Meredith
Lyrics by Emma Lou Thayne

Where can I turn for peace?
Where is my solace
When other sources cease to make me whole?
When, with a wounded heart, anger, or malice
I draw myself apart searching my soul?

Where, when my aching grows?
Where, when I languish?
Where, in my need to know?
Where can I run?
Where is the quiet hand to calm my anguish?
Who, who can understand?
He, only One.

He answers privately.
Reaches my reaching.
In my Gethsemane, Savior, and friend.
Gentle, the peace He finds
For my beseeching.
Constant He is, and kind.
Love without end.
