Representative Text

1 Oh! wondrous love, the love of Christ!
The soul’s sweet resting place,
The palm-tree where we find a shade,
The Rock on which our hopes are laid—
This love is perfect peace.
Perfect peace, perfect peace,
This love is perfect peace.

2 A refuge from each raging storm,
A shelter from the heat,
A tower of strength, a quiet home,
Where weary, troubled hearts may come—
A sure and safe retreat.
Safe retreat, safe retreat,
A sure and safe retreat.

3 Our every burden He will bear,
When we, in simple faith,
In child-like trust, cling and adore,
And learn to love Him more and more,
Believing what He saith.
What He saith, what He saith,
Believing what He saith.
