Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

334. Sweet Peace, the Gift of God's Love

1 There comes to my heart one sweet strain,
A glad and a joyous refrain;
I sing it again and again -
Sweet peace, the gift of God’s love.

Chorus:
Peace, peace, sweet peace!
Wonderful gift from above!
O wonderful, wonderful peace!
Sweet peace, the gift of God’s love!

2 Thru Christ on the cross peace was made,
My debt by His death was all paid;
No other foundation is laid
For peace, the gift of God’s love. [Chorus]

3 When Jesus as Lord I had crowned,
My heart with this peace did abound;
In Him the rich blessing I found -
Sweet peace, the gift of God’s love. [Chorus]

4 In Jesus for peace I abide,
And as I keep close to His side,
There’s nothing but peace doth betide -
Sweet peace, the gift of God’s love. [Chorus]
