1 “Peace like a river!” O Lord, can it be
Wonderful blessings are waiting for me?
Oft I rejoice when some clear sparking rill
Comes from the fountain my spirit to fill;
Now will it seem in its fullness to me
Coming at floodtide, like waves of the sea.

Refrain:
Peace, peace, like a river’s flow,
Peace, peace, my spirit shall know.

2 “Peace like a river!” thy word must be true,
What thou hast promised, thou surely will do,
If I but list to thy loving command,
If I but follow thy dear beck’ning hand;
“Peace like a river” my spirit shall feel;
Joy without measure thy love shall reveal. [Refrain]

3 “Peace like a river” that never runs dry!
Why drink at pools when the fountain is nigh?
River of crystal from under the throne,
Water the sweetest that ever was known;
Free for the poorest, the Saviour has said,
Come to the fountain, the price has been paid. [Refrain]

4 “Peace like a river!” its waves like the sea!
O grant this wonderful blessing to me;
Broaden the way, that the water may flow,
Deepen the channel thro’ which it must go;
Banish whatever may stand in the way,
“Peace like a river” is flowing today. [Refrain]
