Author: Rev. W. D. Cornell Hymnal: Christ in Song #210 (1908) Hymnal Title: Christ in Song First Line: Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight Refrain First Line: Peace! peace! wonderful peace Lyrics: 1 Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight,
Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm;
In celestial like strains it unceasingly falls
O'er my soul like an infinite calm.
Peace! peace! wonderful peace,
Coming down from the Father above;
Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray,
In fathomless billows of love.
2 What a treasure I have in this wonderful peace,
Buried deep in my innermost soul;
So secure that no power can mine it away,
While the years of eternity roll! [Chorus]
3 I am resting to-night in this wonderful peace,
Resting sweetly in Jesus' control;
I am kept from all danger by night and by day,
And his glory is flooding my soul. [Chorus]
4 I believe when I rise to that city of peace,
Where the Author of peace I shall see,
That one strain of the song which the ransomed will sing,
In that heavenly kingdom will be, [Chorus]
5 Weary soul, without gladness or comfort or rest,
Passing down the rough pathway of time!
Make the Saviour your friend ere the shadows grow dark;
O accept of this peace so sublime. [Chorus] Topics: Christ Peace; Christ Peace; Christ Peace; Christ Peace; Christ Peace; Christ Peace; Living His Life Peace; Living His Life Peace; Living His Life Peace Scripture: John 14:27 Tune Title: [Far away in the depths of my spirit tonight]
