Representative Text

1 I stand all bewildered with wonder
And gaze on the ocean of love,
And over its waves to my spirit
Comes peace like a heavenly dove.

The cross now covers my sins,
The past is under the blood;
I’m trusting in Jesus for all,
My will is the will of my God.

2 I struggled and wrestled to win it,
The blessing that setteth me free;
But, when I had ceased from my struggling,
His peace Jesus gave unto me.

3 He laid his hand on me and healed me,
And bade me be every whit whole;
I touched but the hem of his garment,
And glory came thrilling my soul.

4 The Prince of my peace is now passing,
The light of his face is on me;
But listen, beloved, he speaketh:
My peace I will give unto thee.
