Ask and It Shall Be Given
Music: Jonathan Adams
Text: Matthew 7:7-8
Ask, and it shall be given you;
Seek, and ye shall find;
Knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
For whosoever asketh receiveth;
And [they] that seeketh findeth;
And to [them] that knocketh it shall be opened.
Music: Pepper Choplin
Text: Robert Frost
How long ’til this world is free from suffering?
How long ’til blessed peace will reign?
How long ’til the power of love will come and heaven’s will is done?
How long ’til every gun is silenced?
How long ’til hate and war shall end;
‘Til every battle’s thunder will fade to blessed peace and sounds of was will cease?
Press on, let faith and hope sustain you.
Press on, keep working for the day
When all of God’s children will live in peace as one. Until that new day comes,
Send me to work for the kingdom.
Send me to go and live for peace.
Until the love of heaven to earth shall descend and peace will reign again,
Press on, we’ll press on.
We will sing a peaceful song!
But still we’re praying on,
