Peace, 'tis the Lord Jehovah's hand

Peace, 'tis the Lord Jehovah's hand

Representative Text

1 Peace, 'tis the Lord Jehovah's hand
That blast's our joys in death;
Changes the visage once so dear
And gathers back the breath.

2 'Tis he, the Potentate supreme
Of all the worlds above,
Whose steady counsels wisely rule,
Nor from their purpose move.

3 'Tis he, whose justice might demand
Our souls a sacrifice;
Yet scatters with unwearied hand,
A thousand rich supplies.

4 Our covenant God and Father he,
In Christ our bleeding Lord;
Whose grace can heal the bursting heart
With one reviving word.

5 Fair garlands of immortal bliss
He weaves for every brow,
And shall rebellious passions rise,
When he corrects us now;

6 Silent we own Jehovah's name,
We kiss the scourging hand;
And yield our comforts and our life
To thy supreme command.
