1 I’ll sing of a river divine,
Its waters from trouble release;
More precious than “honey and wine,”
That river, sweet river is peace.

Oh, this river of peace
Makes me perfect and whole;
And its blessings increase,
Flowing deep in my soul.

2 It reaches from heaven to earth,
It issues from under the throne;
Great peace! oh, thy infinite worth!
Sweet peace in my Jesus alone. [Refrain]

3 Oh, wonderful life-giving flood,
Thy waters so crystal and pure
Make glad all the “City of God”;
Forever thy blessings endure. [Refrain]

4 Oh, Jesus, the tempest of sin
Is hushed into heavenly rest,
Since tasting the pure, living stream
That flows from Thy crucified breast. [Refrain]

5 My moments as angels appear,
All gliding so gently along;
Each dropping a blessing so rare,
Enraptures my soul with a song. [Refrain]
