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]
