Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Prince of Peace, control my will

Full Text

1. Prince of Peace, control my will,
Bid this struggling heart be still;
Bid my fears and doubtings cease,
Hush my spirit into peace.

2. Thou hast bought me with thy blood,
Open'd wide the gate to God;
Peace, I ask, but peace must be,
Lord, in being one with thee.

3. May thy will, not mine, be done,
May thy will and mine be one;
Chase these doubtings from my heart,
Now thy perfect peace impart.

Notes

The text of this hymn has also been attributed to Mary Dana Shindler, 1810-1853, an American poet and hymn writer. However, the poem first appeared in the March 3, 1838 edition of Church of England Magazine. Mary Ann Serrett Barber, who was born in England, had many of her poems published in this magazine.
