IN ACCEPTANCE LIES PEACE
by Amy Carmichael

He said, “I will forget the dying faces; the empty places.
They shall be filled again. O voices moaning deep
within me, cease,” But vain the word; vain, vain: Not in
forgetting lieth peace.

He said, “I will crowd action upon action, the strife of
faction shall stir me and sustain; O tears that drown the fire
of manhood, cease.” But vain the word; vain, vain: Not in
endeavor lieth peace.

He said, “I will withdraw me and be quiet, Why meddle in
life’s riot? Shut be my door to pain. Desire, thou dost befool
me, thou shalt cease.” Not in aloofness lieth peace.

He said, “I will submit; I am defeated. God hath depleted
my life of its rich gain. O futile murmurings, why will ye
not cease?” But vain the word; vain, vain: Not in
submission lieth peace.

He said, “I will accept the breaking sorrow which God
tomorrow will to His Son explain.” Then did the turmoil
deep within him cease. Not vain the word, not vain; For in
Acceptance lieth peace.
