45. Sweet, Enduring Peace

1 There is a sweet, enduring peace,
Which Jesus ever gives
The soul that chooses Him as Lord,
And in His service lives.

Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Surpassing all besides;
Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Where Christ, the Lord, abides.

2 The passing storms of life that sweep
Across our pathway here,
Can not destroy the peace of God,
Which shineth ever clear. [Refrain]

3 This peace was purchased by the Lord,
On Calv’ry’s cruel tree,
Where Jesus shed His precious blood
To ransom you and me. [Refrain]

4 And now, ascended up on high,
The Comforter He gives,
Who fills with joy and perfect peace
The heart wherein He lives. [Refrain]
