764. Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?

1 Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin?
The blood of Jesus whispers peace within.

2 Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed?
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest.

3 Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.

4 Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and he is on the throne.

5 It is enough: earth's struggles soon shall cease,
and Jesus call to heaven's perfect peace.
