1 Fresh as the dewdrops falling
After the heat of day,
Sweet as the perfume rising
Up from the new-mown hay,
So to the aching spirit,
Bidding its sorrow cease,
Cometh the unseen Presence,
Bearing the gift of peace.

Peace will I give, peace will I give,
Free as the dewdrops falling,
Jesus His peace will give.

2 Peace like the calm of evening
Crowned by the sunset glow,
Peace like a mighty river
Moving in ceaseless flow;
Peace which shall pass all knowledge
Peace none may ever win
Until the heart is ready
For Christ to enter in. [Refrain]

3 Come, then, O precious Savior,
Great peace Thy presence brings,
Lifting the heart each moment
Over all earthly things;
Giving a glimpse of Eden,
Spirit of God, O come,
Guiding thro’ life’s deep shadows,
Lighting our journey home. [Refrain]
