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.
Harry Plantinga

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]
