1 Like radiant sunshine that comes after rain,
Like beautiful rest after sorrow and pain,
like hope that is kindled returning again,
Is the wonderful peace of my Saviour.

Wonderful peace, beautiful peace,
Wonderful peace of my Saviour;
There’s nothing on earth can such gladness impart
As this wonderful peace of my Saviour.

2 So soft and refreshing, as sweet as the dew,
A promise that cannot be broken to you;
A light that will shine all the long journey through,
Is the wonderful peace of my Saviour. [Refrain]

3 It brightens earth’s darkness and banishes care,
And helps you to carry the burdens you bear;
A refuge in trouble, your sorrows to share,
Is the wonderful peace of my Saviour. [Refrain]

4 A guardian in danger where evil is rife,
A mighty defender in conflict and strife,
A beautiful guide to that heavenly life,
Is the wonderful peace of my Saviour. [Refrain]
