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, with loved ones far away?
In Jesus' keeping we are safe and they.
5 Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown?
Jesus we know, and he is on the throne.
6 Peace, perfect peace, death shad'wing us and ours?
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers.
7 It is enough: earth's struggles soon shall cease,
And Jesus call us to heav'n's perfect peace.
