1 It was a time of sweetest peace,
When Jesus came to my release;
Saved me from sin and dark despair,
And wrote my name on pages fair.

I’ll never forget it while ages roll;
I’ll never forget it, sweet peace in my soul;
When Jesus my Savior in quickening power;
Brought life and salvation, and saved me that hour.

2 Though lightnings flash and thunders roll,
This peace abides within my soul;
And though the world rejects me still
His perfect love my heart doth fill. [Refrain]

3 Though clouds may dark and heavy be,
But still by faith my Lord I see;
Through sorrows deep or swelling flood
I rest secure beneath the blood. [Refrain]

4 Then let me lean on Jesus’ breast,
Amid the tempest let me rest;
While clinging to His precious arm,
He’ll shield my soul from every harm. [Refrain]
