Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 I feel in my heart a blessing divine,
‘Tis sweet as the music of heav’n,
It fills all my soul with wonderful peace,
Since Jesus my sins has forgiv’n.

Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Since Jesus my all doth control;
Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Sweet peace is flooding my soul.

2 A treasure worth more than silver and gold
Is peace that the world cannot know,
Secure in my heart, a balm to my soul,
‘Tis with me wherever I go. [Refrain]

3 O wonderful peace, O spirit of rest,
A calm that allays all my fears;
‘Tis filling my heart with love that shall last
Thro’ all of eternity’s years. [Refrain]

4 This peace from my Lord has given to me
A foretaste of glory divine,
‘Tis comfort, ‘tis hope, ‘tis knowledge of him,
Assurance that Jesus is mine. [Refrain]

5 Some day I shall rise to mansions on high,
Beholding my Lord on the throne.
And singing anew of wonderful peace,
There dwelling as one of his own. [Refrain]
