487. Peace, Perfect Peace

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?
On Jesus' bosom naught but calm is found.

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

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

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