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.

Refrain:
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]
