Go in Peace

Representative Text

1 Oh, who is this forgiveth sin,
And promises release?
The voice of Jesus speaks within
And whispers "go in peace,"
And whispers "go in peace."

2 "Thy faith hath saved thee," gracious word!
Let fear and doubting cease.
Obedient to thy mighty Lord
Look up and go in peace,
Look up and go in peace.

3 According to thy faith in Him,
Thy comfort shall increase,
Let not thy hope and trust grow dim,
Believe and go in peace,
Believe and go in peace.

4 A long the common ways of life
Till evening brings release,
Amid the daily toil and strife,
He bids thee go in peace,
He bids thee go in peace.

5 Forgiven much, Oh love Him much,
Thou sinner saved by grace,
If thou hast felt His healing touch,
Thou shalt behold His face,
Thou shalt behold His face.
