Have You found the Peace?

Have you found the peace that passeth understanding

Author: Ida L. Reed
Tune: [Have you found the peace that passeth understanding?]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Have you found the peace that passeth understanding?
Are you happy in the Saviour's love?
Are your sins washed white in the precious cleansing fountain?
Are you seeking now a home above?

O blessed peace that Jesus gives,
Seek now the priceless treasure;
Look unto him and thou shalt live,
He'll give thee without measure.
His wondrous love, his mercies sure,
And joys unfading, rich and pure,
O look, look and live.

2 Have you heard his voice, his gentle invitation?
Did you listen to the accents low?
Leaving all for him, gladly, willingly to follow
Whersoever he hath bid thee go? [Chorus]

3 O the joy and peace, the deep and boundless mercy,
O the blessings he alone can give;
O the love he bears thee, so blessed, so undying,
Look to Jesus, O believe and live. [Chorus]
