554b. 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, with sorrows surging round?
In Jesus' presence naught but calm is found.

4 Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus' keeping we are safe, and they.

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

6 Peace, perfect peace, death shad'wing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its pow'rs.

7 It is enough: earth's struggles soon shall cease,
and Jesus call to heav'n's perfect peace.
