Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

767. River of Peace

1 I’ll sing of a river divine,
Its waters from trouble release;
More precious than “honey and wine,”
That river, sweet river is peace.

Refrain:
Oh, this river of peace
Makes me perfect and whole;
And its blessings increase,
Flowing deep in my soul.

2 It reaches from heaven to earth,
It issues from under the throne;
Great peace! oh, thy infinite worth!
Sweet peace in my Jesus alone. [Refrain]

3 Oh, wonderful life-giving flood,
Thy waters so crystal and pure
Make glad all the “City of God”;
Forever thy blessings endure. [Refrain]

4 Oh, Jesus, the tempest of sin
Is hushed into heavenly rest,
Since tasting the pure, living stream
That flows from Thy crucified breast. [Refrain]

5 My moments as angels appear,
All gliding so gently along;
Each dropping a blessing so rare,
Enraptures my soul with a song. [Refrain]
