1081. Glorious Peace

1 I came defiled and guilty
To Jesus the mighty to save;
He took my sins and sorrows,
And beauty for ashes gave.

Refrain:
Peace, peace, glorious peace,
Like tranquil waters flow;
Streaming down over my heart,
Made white as the driven snow.

2 I came to Jesus repenting,
Confessing my every sin,
My heart’s door swung wide open,
And glorious peace flowed in. [Refrain]

3 And since that joyful moment
Of glorious peace to me,
My soul has ceased its pining,
My heart has been light and free. [Refrain]

4 Roll on, ye changing seasons,
Or turbulent seas of sin;
I’ve found a blessed shelter,
And glorious peace within. [Refrain]
