Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 My soul hath found abiding peace
Above earth’s busy whirl and din,
For grace hath made the strife to cease,
That held so long God’s throne within.

’Tis peace, ’tis peace, ’tis perfect peace,
My Savior keeps in perfect peace;
’Tis peace, ’tis peace, ’tis perfect peace,
My Savior keeps in perfect peace.

2 ’Tis peace that like a river flows
Calmly along life’s devious way
My will no longer doth oppose
The Master’s mild and gentle sway. [Refrain]

3 O wondrous gift so freely giv’n
To me, the least of His redeemed,
That brought e’en here the calm of Heav’n,
As on His Word my soul I leaned. [Refrain]

4 O gracious Savior, Prince of Peace,
Accept the grateful praise I bring.
And when my life on earth shall cease,
In Heaven I will Thy praises sing. [Refrain]
