Lyrics
"Serenity"
By Les Browning
Jesus please, build me a bridge to Serenity,
Violence, chaos, and confusion,
Seems like Satan is always ruling,
Couldn't be further from the truth,
'Cause Jesus is who makes the rules,
A child on the street, in the early seventies,
Bad luck, bad company,
I had to come to Jesus on my hands and knees,
To really find my peace and Serenity.
Chorus
Jesus please, build me a bridge to Serenity,
Goodness and mercy gonna follow me,
Lay me down, lay me down,
Next to still waters
Build Me This bridge
Verse
Talk On the street was that he cheated,
Broke her wings never gave her the love she needed,
So easy to believe the lies at hand,
So easy to blame the man,
Chorus
Build me a bridge to Serenity,
Goodness and mercy gonna follow me,
Lay me down, lay me down, lay me down,
Next to still waters
Lay me down, lay me down, lay me down,
In the tall grass next to still water,
Build Me This Bridge, a bridge, a bridge,
From Heaven to Serenity,
