1 Jesus gives his peace to me,
Wonderful, wonderful peace;
Like his love, a boundless sea,
Wonderful, wonderful peace.

Peace, peace, wonderful peace,
Peace, peace, wonderful peace;
Jesus gives his peace to me,
Wonderful, wonderful peace.

2 Surface feelings ebb and flow,
Wonderful, wonderful peace;
Sweet, abiding calm below,
Wonderful, wonderful peace. [Refrain]

3 Not my charge his gift to hold,
Wonderful, wonderful peace;
Jesus keeps it–grace untold–
Wonderful, wonderful peace. [Refrain]

4 This my part–to trust in him,
Wonderful, wonderful peace;
Whether skies be bright or dim,
Wonderful, wonderful peace. [Refrain]

5 Praying, watching, serving still,
Wonderful, wonderful peace;
Let me learn, and do his will,
Wonderful, wonderful peace. [Refrain]
