Full Text

1 For peace I’m longing, for Christ I’m seeking;
Oh, who will tell me where they do dwell?
With Jesus only peace is securéd;
My soul hath found Him, and all is well;
And Jesus will abide with me,
And Jesus will abide with me.

2 If you would find Him, that precious Saviour,
You must desire Him with all your heart.
Enter your closet and pray in secret,
And He will answer and peace impart;
And Christ himself will come to you,
And Christ himself will come to you.

3 For he that seeketh most surely findeth,
And he who asketh shall yet receive.
Christ hears your knocking and answers prayer;
The door is open, come and believe;
And all within is joy and peace,
And all within is joy and peace.
