1 From the heart of Jesus flowing,
Cometh Heaven’s peace to me,
Ever deeper, richer growing,
Through the cross of Calvary.
Passing mortal understanding,
Yet to seeking ones made known,
And, for all the race expanding,
Gift of God unto his own.

2 To the heart where strife was reigning,
Jesus spake, dissension ceased;
From the bonds, so long enchaining,
I was instantly released.
Pardon for all past transgression,
Grace for every time of need;
With such treasure in possession,
Happy is my lot indeed.

3 Undisturbed, throughout the ages,
Heaven’s peace is in God’s will,
Present though the conflict rages,
Blessing me through good or ill.
Jesus, source of calm unfailing,
With his peace my heart has filled,
He abides, o’er all prevailing,
And, in him, life’s storms are stilled.
