338. Peace, to Soothe Our Bitter Woes

1 Peace, to soothe our bitter woes,
God in Christ on us bestows;
Jesus bought our peace with God
With his holy, precious blood;
Peace in him for sinners found
Is the Gospel's joyful sound.

2 Peace within the Church still dwells
In her welcomes and farewells;
And through God's baptismal pow'r
Peace surrounds our dying hour.
Peace be with you, full and free,
Now and through eternity.
